The end of the UEFA Nations League for Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, the world’s legendary footballer, ended in an embarrassing way. His team lost 0-1 against Spain in Portugal League A Group 2. Ronaldo, broken by this defeat, went out of the field crying. With this defeat, Portugal’s team was eliminated from the tournament. Spain topped the group with 11 points. At the same time, Portugal finished second with 10 points.
According to the rules of the Nations League, the top teams in the four groups of League A advance to the semi-finals. In this way Croatia from Group-1, Spain from Group-2, Italy from Group-3 and Netherlands from Group-4 managed to reach the last-4. Apart from Portugal, strong teams like world champions France, Germany, England, Belgium and Poland have also been eliminated.
Portugal, who won the first Nations League in 2019, needed just one point against Spain. He would have reached the semi-finals even if the match was drawn, but it did not happen. Both the teams did not score in the first half of the match. By the end of the second half, it looked like Portugal would be able to draw the match, but the match was reversed in the 88th minute.

Spain striker Alvaro Morata scored a goal in the 88th minute off Nico Williams. With this goal Spain reached the semi-finals. At the same time, the dream of Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo was broken. His form is going bad before the World Cup. He could only score two goals in five matches of the Nations League. Ronaldo has not scored a single goal for Manchester United in six matches of the English Premier League. At the same time, he has one goal in the Europe league.
