Christiano Ronaldo wasn’t too impressed with Iceland’s historic draw with Portugal, claiming the team’s defensive strategy was a sign of its “small mentality.”
Iceland’s Kari Arnason, who was tasked with marking Ronaldo, fired back at the Real Madrid star for his critical comments:
(via The Sun)
“He’s just a sore loser. He didn’t want to lose the game.
“What does he expect? For us to play like Barcelona against him?
“He fannies about and dives around.”
And then Arnason really dropped the hammer on Ronaldo, via ESPN.com:
“Obviously we’re not going to create as many chances as a fantastic team like Portugal, but his comments are the reason why Messi is always going to be one step ahead of him. It shows we got under his skin. It was lovely to hear that.”
That one has to sting.
