Ronaldo cry as Portugal side won the European Championship 2016 final

Cristiano Ronaldo is having the most amazing time of his life after the European Championship 2016 where the Portugal side is crowned as the champion of this tournament. Ronaldo has a glittering football career ever since his time at Manchester United. He has won almost everything there is to win for all his clubs but something which is lacking in his CV was the international award for his country. Ronaldo had never fulfilled his dream of winning for his country until yesterday night whereby the Portugal finally won 1-0 in the extra time at the very end of the match.

However, winning the Euro 2016 is not the usual way how Ronaldo wins tournaments. He would usually win by well-struck shots, hitting the ball aggressively into his opponent half or crushing ordinary men like tin cans. Ronaldo had never won anything from the technical area, hands up in the air while directing his players through the last stages of the cup final.

Looking forward into the future, could Ronaldo become one of the managers? Perhaps not. He is not in the position whereby he needs the money nor the extra stress. On the night of the EURO 2016 final, he was injured and exhausted but that didn’t stop him from channeling all his energy to guiding his team in hope that it might make some kind of different on the pitch. After Portugal side won, perhaps he did help the team even after he was sidelined due to a knee injury after the 24th minute.

Ronaldo did agree that this is the highest point of his career as he states that, “I always say that I win everything in terms of clubs, then as an individual, but I always say I never win something for Portugal. But I win tonight. So I am so happy, it is a moment that I cannot describe.”

In the early stage of the match, Ronaldo had finally relented to his knee injury and was stretchered off in the 24th minute.

Ronaldo also mentioned that “I am so glad, it is something unbelievable in my career, something that I deserve. Today I had some bad luck because if a small injury, but my colleagues do it. They run, they fight, we played against everyone, we played against 70,000 people in the stadium, nobody believed, but we won.”

Ronaldo broke down when he was carried off from the pitch with his knee beyond immediate repair. At that very moment when Ronaldo tournament seem like it had ended, the fate of Portugal winning the EURO 2016 look slim.

For all that he can annoy and intimidate people, he will be known as one of the greatest footballers of his generation. In the coming international tournaments, he will be 33 during the next World Cup, 35 for the next European Championship. Winning the EURO 2016 came at the right time as he is at his highest point in his career.

If Portugal was to fail in the final, that would be fine as well. That is just football and these things do happen. But it would be a great disappointment for Ronaldo as he hadn’t even had the chance to impose himself on the game and it would be a cruel fortune for him. When he was injured, he didn’t want to leave the pitch. He tried twice to continue and even the French fans booed and screamed at him. However, he had to relent in the end and leave the pitch.

“It was really tough because we lost our main man,” said Pepe. “We had placed high hopes in him because he is a player who can score a goal at any minute, we know his ability, but when he said he couldn’t go on, I told my teammates that we have to win this tournament for him, we are all out to fight for him.”

After the match ended, Ronaldo reemerges at the full time as his knee was strapped and training top is on. His teammates were drained, slumped and depleted on the turf. He walked through their ranks like a king before a battle. With a quiet word here and a pat on the shoulder there.

The winning goal from Eder when he had a superb strike at the 109th minute seal the deal for Portugal side. Ronaldo was seen excited while celebrating alone on the sidelines. His hand was over his face as everyone on the bench raced onto the pitch to celebrate with the goal scorer.

Tears were seen flowing freely and adrenaline rushing through the Real Madrid man’s veins. He had to be there on the sideline as he couldn’t sit down and couldn’t take his place with the other players. He had to make an impact, any kind of impact.

The coaching staff tried to urge him back onto the bench but without any success. Ronaldo was so drawn to the action on the pitch. In the end, the coaching staff gave up and left him alone as he should be. He shuffles up and down the touchline, yelling instructions at players who were probably too tired to listen. As the clock ticked down, he gets more tensed.

At the end of the match, Pepe was named as the man of the match. When asked how he felt about his new ‘assistant manager,” he laughed but he was diplomatic about it. “The gaffer is our leader. On the pitch, we are all managers because the gaffer lays down the tactics and on the pitch we do our best. But in fact, the older players are there to incentivize and help the younger ones.”

Seconds before the final whistle, Ronaldo got really excited and grabbed coach Fernando Santos and shook him vigorously. As Santos look uncertain and awkward, the manager did not celebrate until everything is confirmed. But as the referee Mark Clattenburg blew the final whistle, there was nothing left to worry about.

Santos also mentioned that “our skipper had an immense effort. We had amazing team spirit and he had amazing team spirit. He tried twice and as much as he could to get back on the pitch but he just couldn’t do it. With him being there in the locker room and on the bench, it was very important to us. The way he reached out to the lads, incentivized them, he believes, like I believed, that tonight was our night.”

After the final whistle, Ronaldo stood alone for a moment, eyes wide open and flashed in his face. He hugged the coach and they fell to the floor with Ronaldo shoulders heaving. When he was back on his feet, he limped out to the pitch and congratulate all his teammates one by one. Something will always remain the same for Ronaldo as he peeled off his shirt.

This is indeed the kind of victory that Ronaldo is looking for in a long time. The international success will move him ahead of Lionel Messi with one medal to none. In their constant pursuit of excellence, this is not exactly how Ronaldo would have imagined it happening. He lifted the trophy above his head in pride and roared with delight.
