Ronaldo: Penalty miss my fault

Cristiano Ronaldo accepts his penalty miss against Austria was “my mistake” but remains confident Portugal will reach the Euro 2016 knockout stages.

Ronaldo’s penalty towards the end of Portugal’s 0-0 draw with Austria on Saturday sent goalkeeper Robert Almer the wrong way yet cannoned off the post to leave the Real Madrid forward without a goal in two matches and his country needing a win against Hungary next week.

“We have to keep going. The penalty that I missed was my mistake, but these things happen in football,” he said after the game.

“I’m convinced that Portugal will raise their level and qualify. Although I’m disappointed, I find myself in a pretty good way.”
