    And they kinda cut away from it but it seemed he had no interest in shaking hands, just wanted to complain about something to the ref.

    So much salt and ******** from Ronaldo about Iceland celebrating that they got a result that no one expected. If you don't want them to celebrate, then go score and win the game instead of whining. On top of that, he has to justify that by saying Iceland won't be doing anything in the Euro...just weak and classless.

    Isnt't he from Madeira?

    Maybe if that island started a national team and tried to qualify for the EURO he would appreciate the excitement of Iceland of getting a point from their first ever tournament final. What an idiot.

    An outsider who has never been to a major tournament before manages to hold the favourite, a traditional football powerhouse, to a draw and Ronaldo whines about them celebrating. "Small mentality"? Yes, on Ronaldo's part for sure.

    Well, you have to understand it is just not fair when weaker teams give it their all on defense trying to disrupt your your game in order to get an unexpected point, when what they really should do is just try to attack and leave lots of room for the stronger teams star players so they can show off their mad skills and stroll to an easy blowout win.

    Not sure it's necessary but :sarcasm:

    Apparently close to 10% of Iceland's entire population has ventured to France to watch their team play. :laugh:

    Great moment for them, drawing a relative Goliath in Portugal.

    After all this years and even in spite of being a father C. Ronaldo still seems incredibly insecure and self-absorbed. Let's hope he gets a grip before his career ends, because he the little respect and adoration he receives right now will then decrease completely.

    Well that probably comes with the territory of repeatedly falling short with his national side.

    All the league titles in the world can't make up for Portugal's ongoing failures at the world stage.

    Ronaldo's been around for quite a few of them, and has yet to leave with anything more than a runner-up trophy back in '04.

    He's like the Ovechkin of soccer. :sarcasm:

    By "proper grammar", do you mean spelling it "you" instead of "u"?

    Because that sort of takes the fun out of it. :sarcasm:

    EDIT: Yep, just checked on google translate again, lol.

    Weird how changing "u" to "you", changes "Vitlaus" to "Reiður". :help:

    The problem I have with Ronaldo's comments are that they're coming from a guy who played how many years under Mourinho and still even to an extent now where they did their fair share of parking the bus.

    Well, without getting into an Icelandic language class, it also changes "Þú" to "Ertu"

    Your way is fine though, and easily understandable, I just felt like throwing in some grammar :laugh:

    I remember hearing that he has over 100 millions followers in the social media, though. So he has more than little adoration, at least in some circles.

    I'm sure (if he really wants to) he can have a career in entertainment/movies/TV/ talk-shows/general "expert" or commentator on football related matters.

    Heck, he could most likely have a Maradona-type of career as a manager as well just because of his reputation.
