There have been a huge amount of penalties so far this tournament, however following his miss from the spot, Ronaldo has joined Lionel Messi, as well as other stars such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, as one of the only players to miss from the spot this summer in Russia.
Here’s a clip of Ronaldo missing his big chance to put Portugal in the driving seat against Iran and in group B.
Anything Messi can do, Ronaldo can do too it seems!
