“As you saw, I missed the penalty but I also wanted to be the first to score, you have to take responsibility when the team should.“You can’t be afraid, I’ve never been afraid to face things head on, sometimes I get it right, sometimes I don’t get it right, but giving up is something you’ll never hear from my name,” he said.

“This will be my last Euro, of course. But I’m moved by this, I’m moved by enthusiasm. I was sorry for the fans. I’ll always give my best for this shirt, whether I miss it or not. And I’ll do this my whole life. You have to take responsibility,” the superstar said.
