The coach of the Portugal national team, Fernando Santos, has revealed his players were in tears, following their exit from Euro 2020 on Sunday.
The defending champions lost 1-0 to the top-ranked country in the world Belgium in the last-16 of the tournament.
Santos feels his side were hard done by, as they had four times the number of shots their opponents mustered.
“There are players crying in the changing room. They gave everything. Belgium had 6 shots, we had 29. Sincerely I don’t have many words.
“We believed if we won this one, we would have gone on to win the next one. They scored, we didn’t. It’s football,” Santos said.
Belgium will now face another favourites Italy in the quarter-finals.
