France Defeats Portugal In Shootout To Advance To Semifinals, Ending Ronaldo’s Dream

france-euro-2024

France secured a 5-3 victory on penalties against Portugal after a goalless draw in their European Championship quarter-final on Friday, effectively ending Cristiano Ronaldo’s international career spanning 21 years.

Theo Hernandez sealed the win with a decisive penalty after Portugal’s Joao Felix struck the post with their third attempt. France’s next challenge is a semi-final clash against Spain in Munich on Tuesday.

For Portugal, the defeat likely marks the conclusion of Ronaldo’s illustrious international journey. Although he converted Portugal’s opening penalty, Ronaldo also endured notable missed opportunities during the match.

France’s triumph serves as redemption for their penalty shootout losses in the previous Euros against Switzerland and in the 2022 World Cup final versus Argentina.

Ousmane Dembele, Youssouf Fofana, Jules Kounde, and Bradley Barcola all successfully converted their penalties for France.

The match, which started slowly, concluded with numerous missed chances for both teams over 90 minutes and extra time.

Despite advancing to the semi-finals without scoring from open play in the tournament, France has maintained a clean defensive record at Euro 2024, aided by goalkeeper Mike Maignan’s pivotal saves in Friday’s crucial encounter.
