Cristiano Ronaldo was in tears after Portugal lost to Morocco in a quarter-final game at the 2022 World Cup on Saturday.
Saturday’s win made the Atlas Lions the first African nation to reach the semi-final of the global football competition.
Morocco, also the first Arab team to make the last four, added Portugal to their list of European scalps with a resolute second-half performance.
Cristiano Ronaldo has likely played his last World Cup match after making an ineffectual appearance as a second-half substitute, failing to score his first knockout-phase goal at the tournament.
Morocco took a 42nd-minute lead through En-Nesyri’s header as they came on strong late in the first period.
Portugal enjoyed the majority of possession in the opening half-hour, but Joao Felix’s fifth-minute diving header, saved by goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, was the closest either side came to an early goal.
Following the game, a gutted Ronaldo was inconsolable as his hopes of a World Cup medal slipped away.
