Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has fired warning to every European country presence at the 2020 tournament attempting to snatch their title from Portugal.

The Entire football scene was sent into a complete state of shock when Portugal defy all odds to clinch a historic European success under the Nose of heavy favorites and host Nation France in 2016.

That is not without some dramatic moments though, the Seleção’s only managed to qualify for the knockout stage being chosen as one of the 3rd in the group stage and everyone strongly believe they won’t even go past the last 16.

Ronaldo’s injury in the first half of the final Against France further cast doubts on any chance of winning their first ever Euro title but football they say is unpredictable and that has been proven again when Eder struck a low long range effort to beat Hugo Loris at the bottom left corner in extra time to seal victory for the Ronaldo led Portuguese team.

Heading into their title defense opener against Hungary tomorrow, Cristiano Ronaldo took to his Instagram handle to write:

“For 5 years we surprised Europe, winning for the first time a great international competition for Portugal. Of this group of extraordinary players who wrote their name to gold letters in football history, we have only 11 left in this Euro 2020, but I know that all those absent are also here with us. Not only them, but millions of Portuguese scattered throughout the four corners of the world.

“We know you are with the team, we feel your support, your cry and your belief! It is for you that we enter the field, it is for you that we sing the hymn, it is for you that we fight for each point, for each victory and for each divided ball…

As champions in title, we know that our responsibilities increase, and with them our will, our surrender and our self-denial increase. Let’s leave everything on the field to raise Portugal’s name high again!”
