Roy Keane Was In Magnificently Cutting Form About Ronaldo's Waterworks

There was little time for Cristiano Ronaldo's waterworks in the ITV studio last night.

Lee Dixon joked he needed just one more teary moment from the Portugal captain to claim the panel sweepstakes.

I was just adding up and I needed Ronaldo to cry one more time, I had seven in the sweep.


Ronaldo departed Sunday night's final after 25 minutes. The reason was a tackle from Dimitri Payet 18 minutes earlier which resulted in an MCL strain. Ronaldo's desire to remain on the pitch would not be enough, the injury triumphed and he was replaced by Ricardo Quaresma.

After the game, Roy Keane said that he saw nothing wrong with the tackle. He was also glad Portugal emerged as winners, if only because it prevented sorrowful tears from the 31-year-old.

It's unfortunate. If anything it was a great tackle. The trailing leg, the momentum of the tackle; football is a physical game and it's unfortunate.

We're just glad he won because we couldn't stand any more tears.

When Eder scored Portugal's winner, video from the stand apperared to show Ronaldo in a state of disbelief. Giving a little insight into his former teammate's mind - a conclusion many fans would have come to also - Keane thought Ronaldo would have had serious doubts about Portugal's prospects of winning one he had left the pitch.

[He's thinking] I'm the main man, we probably won't win it now.
