Liverpool forward Diogo Jota had an evening to forget as Portugal were eliminated from Euro 2020 on Sunday.
A single goal by Thorgan Hazard was enough for Belgium to knock out the title holders, bumping up their chances of claiming the silverware this summer immensely.
Jota notably fluffed a chance on goal, but he isn’t to blame for Portugal’s overall lacklustre performance.
Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane took aim at the Liverpool forward in his post-match analysis, but in truth no-one was safe.
“Maybe his first touch could be slightly better, but he never looks comfortable – and you have to be critical. When you get these chances, you have to hit the target.
“It was [Portugal’s] real lack of quality in the final third. One or two chances – I get really annoyed with [players not taking their chances], especially when they are quality players.”
After his nation’s exit, Jota is expected to spend the next few weeks recharging his batteries before re-joining the Liverpool squad for pre-season preparations.
Team-mates Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Thiago Alcantara are still competing at Euro 2020, with Switzerland and Spain potentially meeting in the quarter-finals if they win their upcoming fixtures.
