Cristiano Ronaldo is the person with a small mentality, not the Iceland players- Paul Doyle

“I thought they’d won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end, it was unbelievable,” complained a man who thinks the successful conversion of a penalty is ample reason to launch into a full Chippendales routine. “When they don’t try to play and just defend, defend, defend, this is in my opinion shows a small mentality and they are not going to do anything in the competition,” continued Ronaldo, who should know more than most what a ludicrous statement that was. But maybe in the murk of disappointment even this most self-aware of footballers forgot where he came from.
When or if he reflects more deeply on Iceland’s feat, the man from Madeira might appreciate the work that went into getting players from a remote island to mingle successfully with the elite. For Iceland, as for Ronaldo, it has taken exceptional dedication, a powerful and clear-headed determination, to develop natural talent to the highest possible degree. For Ronaldo that has meant hours of work with coaches and by himself on pitches and in gyms; for Iceland it has meant training coaches and building pitches and gyms.
