video:Watch the moment Cristiano Ronaldo leave Euro 2016 final in tears after knee injury

Portugal’s captain was taken off before halftime of Sunday’s Final after suffering a hard knock to the knee by French midfielder Dimitri Payet.
Although it doesn’t look like much of a hit on Ronaldo, watching the challenge in real-time is brutal. Completely out-of-control despite trying to slow down his momentum, Payet ran Ronaldo over. And only in the seventh minute of the match!

Desperate to compete and lead his nation to their first major international trophy, Ronaldo received treatment on his knee and tried to play through the pain. Essentially playing on one leg, Ronaldo
dribbled once with clear difficulty before calling it quits and summoning the stretcher.
Sitting on the ground in despair, Ronaldo’s tears flowed. The superstar forward was under pressure to play well and make amends for Portugal’s upset loss to Greece at the Euro 2004 Final on home soil.
Sadly for Ronaldo, the dream of leading Portugal to their first trophy will have to wait until the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
