Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance at the recent Euros has split opinion – and FOX Sports Asia readers.
Portugal’s success provides the Real Madrid superstar with the international glory that his glittering career has until this point lacked. While Ronaldo looked on from the sidelines as his team-mates downed France after he suffered a first-half injury, there is no doubting the role he played in their triumph.
However, on Monday the FOX Sports Asia Euro 2016 Team of the Tournament didn’t have space for the Portuguese ace in what was a hotly-contested race for the best XI.
