Dammmmnnnn!

I'm gonna go cry in a corner
Wtf are you thinking. Everyone knows the 4th pen is the most important and yet Ronaldo doesn't step up. If he wanted it he could have had it. Wtf

I'm reading the gamecast on espn and they're saying that it may have been Ronaldo's choice to not shoot at the 4-spot. I'm not sure, but apparently Nani waived Alves off before his make. If that is the case, I think Ronaldo wanted the 5-spot with a chance to be the hero.

Guessing he was hoping for his own Diamanti moment of putting it in the back of net as the clincher.

Tough one, Nick. Might be seeing you for the 3rd place game if we can't contain Germany.


Edit: D'oh! *no 3rd place game in Euro Cup

Call up your lady if you have one. If she cares, she'll make it better.

Sorry man...penalties are tough way to go out. Hope you feel better soon!
was Ronaldo slated to kick the 5th one?

I would assume so, but he should have taken the 4th. If Portugal doesn't clarify how all this went down, this will remain an abosulte mystery to me. Did the coach decide that Ronaldo was 5th? Did Ronaldo have the choice (because Nani did, apparently)?

your best PK shooter, assuming it's him since I don't know the team that well, should kick either 4th, 3rd or 1st but NEVER 5th

god that is a such a horrible mistake
