Cassano: Ronaldo is Portugal's biggest problem

Former Italy star Antonio Cassano says Cristiano Ronaldo is Portugal's weakest link.

Cassano has been critical of the released Manchester United striker during the Euros.

He said, "Portugal on Monday did not deserve to win because Uruguay had 4-5 sensational chances.

"Lusitans have talents that I like so much like Joao Felix and (Joao) Cancelo. If anything, the problem is Cristiano Ronaldo, who never has it ciapata.

"He also wanted the goal the other night despite the ball having passed a quarter of an hour earlier. CR7 then takes away space from the other guys... He doesn't give a damn, he just wants to score goals. Portugal has a lot of talent but there is this enigma Cristiano Ronaldo who thinks he is the best. He's gone for me now."
