You wanted the glory! Nani hits out at Ronaldo over penalty shootout defeat
Posted Friday, June 29, 2012 by Dailymail

Nani has hit out at Cristiano Ronaldo and accused his country's captain of lying over the penalty debacle in the Euro 2012 semi-final.

Ronaldo has come under attack for not stepping up sooner in the shootout defeat to Spain, which was lost without the Real Madrid man taking his kick after Bruno Alves, a defender, thundered his effort against the crossbar.

The world's most expensive player insists the order was decided by manager Paul Bento, but, reflecting on the heartbreaking defeat, Nani, a former club team-mate at Manchester United, said Ronaldo wanted the glory shot for himself.
