Portugal were held to a 1-1 draw by minnows Iceland last night in Euro 2016. While Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. were strong favourites and took the lead, Iceland clawed their way back into the tie and found an equaliser.

However, the Real Madrid frontman was far from impressed with how Iceland went about their business, as they defended their drawn position in the final moments of the match.

As reported by RTÉ, Cristiano Ronaldo was outraged after the final whistle.

“It was a little bit frustrating, we tried hard to win the game, Iceland didn’t try anything.

“They scored a goal, they created two chances in the 90 minutes and otherwise they got every player behind the ball, they put the bus in the net.

“So it’s difficult when one team don’t try, but Portugal try and play football and try to win the game.

“Iceland didn’t try anything, they were just defend, defend, defend and playing on the counter-attack. It was a lucky night for them.

“I thought they’d won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end, it was unbelievable.

“When they don’t try to play and just defend, defend, defend, this in my opinion shows a small mentality and they are not going to do anything in the competition.”

Austria and Hungary are also in Group F, and Portugal will likely have to find a win at some point to ensure progression to the next round.
