Video: Watch the heartbreaking moment Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother broke down in tears after her son’s penalty miss vs Slovenia

Cristiano Ronaldo’s quest for Euro 2024 glory took an emotional turn during the match against Slovenia at the Frankfurt Arena.

In the first half of extra time, the 2016 European champions were awarded a penalty after Diogo Jota was fouled.

Ronaldo stepped up to take the penalty but was thwarted by Jan Oblak’s impressive save.

The missed opportunity hit hard, and the Al-Nassr star was visibly emotional, shedding tears.

Teammates, including former Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot, gathered around to comfort him as they prepared for the second period of extra time, according to GOAL.

Cameras captured Ronaldo’s emotional response, underscoring the significant impact of the miss.

His mother, Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro, also appeared emotional and was seen crying after witnessing her son’s penalty miss.

Ronaldo’s challenges persisted throughout the night. The 39-year-old faced a difficult game on Monday, with several errant free-kicks and another easily saved by Oblak.

Despite his many successes over the years, Ronaldo has struggled to score from direct free-kicks in major international tournaments.

For the first time in his career, Ronaldo failed to score during the group stages of a major international tournament, adding to the night’s heartbreak, as reported by the Mirror
