Sporza analysts felt Cristiano Ronaldo made a huge mistake after the coin toss: “Martinez should have known that, right?”

Did Cristiano Ronaldo break the golden rule of penalty shootouts? Gert Verheyen and Wesley Sonck think so. The Portuguese captain chose to let France start the series. “I don’t know why you give the ball away,” he said.

Big eyes at Sporza studio.

Analysts Wesley Sonck and Gert Verheyen saw Cristiano Ronaldo make a surprise choice just before the penalty shootout after winning the toss. CR7 decided to let the French start. However, it has been statistically proven that the starting team wins more often.

“Roberto Martinez should know that, right?” host Carl Vannewoecker asked the group.

“If you can choose, you should always start,” Verheyen said. “I don’t know the psychological reason behind handing the ball over.”

“Perhaps he hoped the French would make a mistake, so he could kick the first ball more calmly,” replied Vanewekerk.

“If you want to be the big guy, you usually have to wait until the end of the series to finish it,” Verheyen said. “But he doesn’t do that either. So he doesn’t want to be the big guy for a while.”
