Santos has no regrets about making Ronaldo a substitute

Grape star Cristiano Ronaldo did not start from the starting lineup in the quarter-finals of this World Cup , and Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina also posted a post on personal social media criticizing the Portuguese coach. Some fans also think that Ronaldo did not get the starting lineup. One of the reasons why Portugal was eliminated.

During Portugal 's match against Morocco, Adiyat crossed from the left side of the penalty area in the 42nd minute. Portuguese goalkeeper Costa failed to get the ball when he struck out, and then Ennasiri jumped up and headed the ball into the empty goal. Inside, Morocco took the lead 1-0.

In the second half, Portugal kept trying to break through, but Morocco always maintained a 1-0 score until the end of the game.

Coach Santos said in an interview after the game that he did not regret letting Ronaldo be a substitute. He said that Ronaldo's playing will not change anything, and also emphasized that the team's current configuration is already very good, so there is no reason to make changes.

Coach Santos also admitted that arranging Ronaldo on the bench is one of the most difficult decisions he has ever made, but it is not that Ronaldo is no longer good, it has nothing to do with his decision.
