Round of 16: Spain beat Portugal but... where was Cristiano Ronaldo?

Share |

David Villa is the name of the impressive striker that beat Portugal out of the World Cup. In this match, Villa did everything that Cristiano Ronaldo was supposed to do: score, win, being the main atraction of the game, take his country to the next level.

Spain beat Portugal only 1-0 but we could say that it was the best match of Del Bosque's side so far. If Xavi, Iniesta, Ramos and Villa keep playing like this, this may be the Cup of Spain after all.

As for Ronaldo, it seems like the curse of the last Nike advert touched him too: all footballers that took part of the spot had a sad participation in this World Cup (Rooney, Cannavaro, Ribery, Drogba, Ronaldo) or could not even take part of it (Ronaldinho). In the end, Portugal did not respond to the high expectations they came with, and Cristiano was not the same player that scored more than 30 goal in the last season with Real Madrid.

Spain will face now Paraguay, and this is the perfect chance to make history and finally win the World crown for the "Red Fury". If they beat Paraguay and reach the semis, nothing will stop them.
