The Portuguese captain recovered by converting his penalty, but the emotion was still very much present at the final whistle. “The initial sadness and the final joy, that’s what football gives, inexplicable moments, that’s what happens.

It’s a feeling of sadness and joy at the same time, but the most important thing is the qualification, the team deserved it.”explained CR7 to the Portuguese media.
