Cristiano Ronaldo was almost teary after missing a crucial penalty during extra time in Monday’s Euro 2024 Round of 16 match between his Portugal team and Slovenia.

However, he laughed last as Portugal defeated a determined Slovenia on penalties, securing a place in the Euro 2024 quarterfinals.

Goalkeeper Diogo Costa emerged as the hero of the night for Portugal, saving all three penalties taken by the valiant Slovenian players.

The match itself was tense and failed to produce any goals during regulation time. Ronaldo, a constant threat, had three free kicks fly off target, leaving penalties as the only way to decide the winner. In the shootout, Costa became the star, saving all three Slovenian penalties. Portugal, on the other hand, were clinical, with Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Bernardo Silva all converting their spot-kicks to secure a 3-0 victory.

They now face France in the quarterfinals, a team that also secured a narrow victory on Monday.

A late own goal by Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen in the 85th minute was enough to edge France past their opponents 1-0.

Despite dominating possession, France has yet to score from open play in the tournament.

However, their overall dominance (19 shots to Belgium’s 5) saw them through to a meeting with Portugal in Hamburg on Friday.
