Cristiano Ronaldo, accompanied by Portugal, was eliminated from the 2022 World Cup after losing to Morocco 0-1, on Saturday evening, at Al-Thumama Stadium, in the quarterfinals.

The beginning was 18 years ago, specifically in Euro 2004, when Portugal qualified for the final match, to face Greece, the surprise of the tournament at the time.

Although Greece had defeated Portugal at the opening of the tournament 2-1, everyone expected that Portugal, the host of the tournament at the time, would sweep its Greek counterpart, but the guests had another opinion, as they achieved victory again with a goal scored by striker Angelos Charesteas.

Thus, Greece was crowned champion of Europe.

After the end of the match, Cristiano Ronaldo was seen crying, after he failed to win his first title with the Portugal national team, and a photo was taken of him that has been widely circulated on social media since that time until now.
