Cristiano Ronaldo has very often provided the finishing touch for club and country but he failed to do so for Portugal after a perfect pass from Diogo Jota.
Our No.20 won the ball high up the pitch after a brilliant tackle on Dani Carvajal and slid a pass into the path of the 37-year-old.
The Manchester United forward was handed a chance to provide his nation a lead against Spain.
Instead, his left-footed effort was saved by Unai Simon and the chance was gone.

Seeing as the Spaniards went on to win the game 1-0, thanks to an Alvaro Morata goal scored shortly after our forward was subbed off, it proved to be a costly miss.
