Bernardo Silva has defended Cristiano Ronaldo amid criticism following his penalty miss against Slovenia.

Despite the miss, Ronaldo later converted a penalty in the shootout as Portugal advanced.

Silva acknowledged Ronaldo’s frustration at not scoring in the tournament so far, noting the high expectations placed on the prolific forward.

He dismissed excessive scrutiny, attributing it to the nature of the football community.

Coach Roberto Martinez addressed Ronaldo’s role, suggesting he might not be the sole choice for free-kicks despite his stature.

Martinez highlighted the competitive edge brought by both Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes in training.

Ronaldo, 39 and participating in his sixth European Championship, has faced questions about his form and starting position.

His missed penalties and unsuccessful free-kick attempts have drawn attention, but Silva and Martinez remain supportive of his contributions and leadership.
