Photo: Cristiano Ronaldo has Rough Game in Portugal-Denmark Match, Misses Open Goals
For someone who recently claimed to be better than Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo is likely feeling quite silly after missing not one but two nearly open goals during a Euro 2012 match this week.
During Portugal’s opening match, Ronaldo had many realizing, once again, that he has a serious issue when playing on the international level.
Not only did Ronaldo fail to score at all in the match, he actually missed his shot on a wide open goal.
Twice Ronaldo had no one standing between him and the Denmark goal but goalkeeper Stephan Anderson, and twice he made embarrassing miscalculations, missing near-perfect opportunities to score. Once he shot the ball directly at Anderson, who easily prevented the score, while another of Ronaldo’s shots was simply too far to the right.
In the end, Portugal still pulled out a much-needed 3-2 win, but won has to wonder, where is Ronaldo’s head?
