Ronaldo played through pain barrier for Portugal - Santos

Fernando Santos has defended Cristiano Ronaldo for failing to score as Portugal edged past Albania 1-0 on Monday, claiming the Real Madrid star played through the pain barrier in the Euro 2016 qualifier.

The story is too old to be commented.

certainly looked like it.

played completely unlike himself. i think he was more of a liability on the field. apart from hitting the post and i think one shot that forced a save from the keeper, he wasnt in the game at all.

What did he do break a toe nail?

With the amout of money these footballers get, they should be on the pitch even if a limb is hanging off.
