After injuring his knee in the early moments, Cristiano Ronaldo was reduced to a spectator in the second half and extra time of the Euro 2016 championship game. When his teammate Éder scored to give Portugal a 1–0 lead, Ronaldo showed that his cheerleading skills are just as fabulous as his goal-scoring prowess. Portugal manager Fernando Santos was also allegedly pleased with his team’s victory over France. The captions of these photographs, provided by Getty Images, note that Santos is “celebrating” Portugal’s victory. I’m just as thrilled as you are, Fernando.
