John Terry Bangs BBC for Graphic After Cristiano Ronaldo Missed Euro 2024 Penalty



John Terry has lambasted the BBC for adopting a caption that insulted Cristiano Ronaldo after the Al-Nassr forward missed a penalty in extra time during Portugal’s Euro 2024 triumph against Slovenia. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak deserves credit for the incredible save he made when facing Ronaldo from 12 yards.

The Portuguese have advanced to the tournament’s last eight after defeating a tenacious Slovenian side in a tense penalty shootout. Diogo Costa was the night’s hero, being the first goalkeeper in European Championship history to save three penalty shootout attempts.

He also rescued Ronaldo’s long-time teammate, Pepe, in the second half of extra time after the former Real Madrid veteran stumbled and let teenage striker Benjamin Sesko in for goal. Costa stood up well, saving both Ronaldo and Pepe’s blushes. By that stage, the former had already missed his penalty after Liverpool’s Diogo Jota was fouled in the area.

Ronaldo had struck a frustrated figure all night as the greatest striker in Euros history tried to add to his amazing total in the competition. He has already completed his first group stage of the tournament without scoring a goal.

Slovenia proved to be a difficult nut to crack, and the Manchester United and Real Madrid star was unable to force the ball into the net despite his best attempts. He was even seen in tears after failing to beat Oblak from the penalty spot. The usually cool and collected forward’s impassioned outburst caught many off guard, but he would get the final laugh on the day.

During the penalty shootout following a goalless draw, Ronaldo shown that he is not afraid of the spotlight by being the first Portugal player to come up and blast his spot kick into the bottom corner, propelling his team to victory.
