Ronaldo scored three times in Portugal’s semi-final win over Switzerland, but failed to replicate the same form against the Holland in the final.
Ronaldo was asked if he was on course for a sixth Ballon d’Or after Portugal’s success in the UEFA Nations League.
“The goal for the match was to win and to play well,” Ronaldo responded, even as another reporter wanted him to speak more about the prestigious award after the win over Holland.
“No, I will not speak about the Ballon d’Or,” he insisted.
Despite his heroics in the semi-final, Ronaldo was not able to win the Player of the Tournament award for the Nations League.
