The final! France - Portugal

Recommended Posts

Looks like Ronaldo may be out. A shame, I want to see him lose outright not like this. Portugal is in trouble.

Huge blow for Portugal if Ronaldo can't continue. Going off the field, it didn't seem like he was in too much discomfort so maybe he can get back on.

Agreed. I wanted to see France defeat Ronaldo, not to see them sending him to the bench. Seriously, that foul looked nasty...

I don't think it was nasty. Payet went for the ball and won it first before he hit Ronaldo. It was partially Ronaldo's fault of doing his classic move of standing with a foot on the ball.

But he is soldiering on.

Nope, that's it. Third time down, he can't be coming back.

How bittersweet would this be for Ronaldo if Portugal wins without him?

Always hard to predict how such events influence the match. It's also possible that Portugal decides to "win for Ronaldo". Or France relaxing a bit because the opposition just lost their best player.

We'll see, I guess.

They'll be looking to the fact they have a really good keeper, but yeah, I suspect Ronaldo's absence has deflated action from the match.

This is match is so popular that even French moths have invaded the stadium to watch. One even got a close up of Ronaldo before he left the field. :P
