Coach of Portugal national team, Fernando Santos has revealed that his star player, Cristiano Ronaldo has been unable to sleep since his shock penalty miss.
According to the Portugal coach, Ronaldo has remained practically wide awake all nights since his costly miss. The coach is however confident that something good will come from it.
“Cristiano hasn’t been able to sleep. On Sunday, I was one of the first up and he was already awake.
“He’s a winner and his experience will help him bounce back.”
“If there is a penalty in the next game, Cristiano Ronaldo will take it and he will score.
“We played really well against Austria without scoring and we have to continue with this attitude. We made Austria, who are ranked 10th in the world, look like a small team.”
The 31-year-old Real Madrid star hit the post in Portugal’s 0-0 group stage draw with Austria.
And now Portugal needs to beat Hungary on Wednesday to progress past the group stage at Euro 2016 in France.
