Portugal are in a difficult position after Cristiano Ronaldo missed what could have been the game-winning penalty during yesterday's match against Austria.

Ronaldo and his teammates will need to get a win on their last match and the star believes they can do it.

"This is football, we obviously did not want this to happen, we created plenty of chances but we couldn't convert them, I missed a penalty myself along with other chances, we must keep working and thanking the fans supporting us but it's disappointing," said Ronaldo after the game.

"We will do our very best in the next match, we gotta think that we can do it, and if we win we will be through," he added.

Ronaldo and his Portugal team entered the tournament being the heavy favorites to win their group in this Euro, but they've drawn their two games against Iceland and Austria, two teams that should be weaker than Ronaldo and Co.
