Ronaldo: 'Portugal fell short'

Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t hide his frustration after Portugal went out of the World Cup. “We fell short.”

They needed to beat Ghana, something they achieved with a 2-1 result, and hope USA-Germany didn’t end in a draw.

The other game went their way only for Portugal to miss out on goal difference.

“We created many opportunities, but we couldn’t take them all and we fell short,” confessed the FIFA World Player of the Year.

“Looking at the result of the other game and the chances we had – it was possible. We tried our best, we gave our all  – but ultimately that’s football.”

At least the Real Madrid star managed to get his first and only goal of the tournament late on.
