Ron­aldo Misses Penalty

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS -

Cris­tiano Ron­aldo missed a sec­ond-half penalty on the night he be­came his coun­try's record ap­pear­ance holder as a hugely frus­trat­ing match for Por­tu­gal and their cap­tain in Paris ended goal­less to leave Group F wide open. Ron­aldo struck the base of the post with his spot kick af­ter Aus­tria de­fender Martin Hin­tereg­ger had wres­tled him to the ground and later headed home only to be de­nied by the off­side flag. But huge credit for Aus­tria's point must go to keeper Robert Almer, who made a string of sen­sa­tional saves.
