Cristiano Ronaldo will receive “no sympathy” after Austria horror show


Alan Shearer says Iceland will have no sympathy for Cristiano Ronaldo after his nightmare night at the Euros.

Ronaldo missed a penalty, had a goal disallowed and wasted a host of other clear-cut opportunities as Portugal played out a stalemate with Austria in Paris.

It follows his “small mentality” jibe at Iceland as Portugal too failed to beat the minnows earlier in the week.

Portugal are now facing elimination from Euro 2016 if they fail to beat highly-impressive Hungary on Wednesday night.

BBC pundit Shearer insists that Iceland will not be feeling sorry for Ronaldo, who became his country’s most-capped player with the appearance, following his rant at Iceland.

He said: “After his comments about Iceland I don’t think he’ll be getting too much sympathy off those guys.”

Shearer continued: “We have witnessed something tonight where one of the greatest goalscorers of all time has an absolute nightmare.

“I was going to say it was one of those nights, but it was one, two, three. We were sat here in disbelief.”

Match of the Day host Lineker added: “In many ways, it shows what he is made of, the fact he just keeps going despite things not going his way.”
