Its not about Ronaldo. I thought it was a bit foolish him in the technical area trying to look like he was directing traffic. However, those types of antics are seen for what they are. Congratulations to Portugal, a long time to wait. I could not stand Pepe but I am warming to him. He is very passionate about his team and he gives everything. Similar to Ricardo Carvalho. Couldn't stand him at Chelsea but good player and passionate. I think Ronaldo's self obsession is something aside from the game. It's not a good look but as I don't see footballers as role models, I think its a personal issue for him. If he doesn't care well then no one cares really. His team mates hoisted the manager on their shoulders that speak volumes.
France didn't have enough quality really. They were combative etc, but there just wasn't enough craft, probably fitting of Deschamp's really. Don't get me wrong France could have won but I don't think it was particularly good French team. To play Pogba as holding midfielder because of his physicality is not a good move. However, small margins decide these games. Well done to Portugal.
