“Portugal can win Euro 2024 only if Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t play!” says former World and Euro Cup winner Frank Leboeuf

Every Cristiano Ronaldo and Portuguese football fan will remember the year 2016. The reason to celebrate is their victory in the 2016 Euro Cup. They defeated the home team, France, in the finals by 1-0.

Moreover, the Euro Cup is their first-ever title in football history. Sadly, they couldn’t defend the title in 2020 but have a chance to win it back this year.

The Portugal football team was undefeated in the qualifiers and won all ten games. They were the No. 1 seed and are favorites to win the title. Not only us but several fans and experts are backing them to win the 2024 Euro Cup.

Former World and Euro Cup winner Frank Leboeuf is one of them. But he concludes by making one of the most controversial statements.

Frank Leboeuf said:

“Portugal can win Euro 2024 only if Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t play!”

Here is the complete statement:

“For me, Portugal is one of the contenders for this summer’s European Championships. I think they can win the Euro, but only if Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t play.”

Is Cristiano Ronaldo the main hurdle for Portugal to win the title?

If we remember, Ronaldo was benched during the 2022 FIFA World Cup. But after the World Cup, he played in every Euro Qualifier. He not only played but also scored ten goals. He was one of the reasons why they won all ten qualifying games.

Moreover, his form since last season has been phenomenal. He has contributed to every game for his club and the national team. Looking at his current form, he is the striker you want to play for your team.

Will Ronaldo start in every 2024 Euro Cup game for the Portugal national football team? Will Portugal win the Euro Cup? Let us know your views in the comment section.
