“I have players crying in the dressing room”: Fernando Santos regrets Portugal’s result in Euro – Euro 2020

“The players were unbeatable. They ran, fought, created opportunities. It’s a big disappointment for us. We all believed we could reach the final and win it. We came with that confidence. I have players crying in the dressing room. But there are things to win in the dressing room. In the 2018 World Cup we were eliminated and then we won the League of Nations in 2019. We have to look forward and go on to win the World Cup”, said Fernando Santos this Sunday.The national selector refused to speak of “luck or bad luck”, but admitted that the result was “unfair”. “Belgium had six shots, hit one. We did 29 and hit the post once and the goalkeeper once. A defeat is a defeat”, added Santos. “The players did everything. They gave what they had and there is nothing to point out. They were tired but found energy”, highlighted the coach, explaining the bet on Palhinha: “I tried to refresh the team, he had played less. William? Sending players to the bench is always difficult.” Without going to ‘rooms’ 25 years later
Portugal failed to qualify for the quarter-finals of a European 25 years later. Since Euro 96, the national team has always reached this tie. It was also the first time that the Quinas team was removed from the round of 16, a format debuted at Euro 2016.

Players from the central axis team, such as moutinho, straw and reuben dias, could not do anything to avoid the 1-0 (play from the flank).

Cristiano Ronaldo did not hide his dissatisfaction with the outcome of the game. After the final whistle, he crouched down and tossed the national team captain’s armband onto the turf.
