Belgium knocked defending champions Portugal out of Euro 2020 with a 1-0 victory in the last 16 to set up a mouth-watering quarter-final tie against Italy.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Spain was not a happy one, as his side Portugal, the defending champions were knocked out by Belgium. Thorgan Hazard’s 43rd-minute strike was the difference between the two teams.

The 36-year-old was having a brilliant tournament, he was the top-scorer with five goals and matched Ali Daei’s record of 109 international goals, the most by any male footballer. However, against Belgium, Ronaldo had a stinker. Apart from the powerful first-half free-kick saved by Thibaut Courtois, he failed to bother the Belgian goalkeeper.

After the end of the match, Cristiano Ronaldo was seen having a quick word with former Real Madrid teammate and Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

The video was shared by UEFA Euro 2020 on Twitter and the video didn’t take too long to go viral.
