Nani snaps back at ex-Man Utd teammate Ronaldo

Nani has hit out at former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo over Portugal's penalty shootout disaster. Ronaldo has come under attack for not stepping up sooner in the shootout defeat to Spain, which was lost without the Real Madrid man taking his kick after Bruno Alves, a defender, thundered his effort against the crossbar.

"Cristiano Ronaldo demanded the last penalty," the winger said. "I said to the coach I would accept any order.

"It didn't seem to be a problem to me, because penalty shoot-outs are all about luck and we did not deserve to lose like that."
