Cristiano Ronaldo Was Kept Quiet By Lucas Hernandez's Brilliant Performance

Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score for Portugal against France on Sunday night, and it was down to the excellent performance of Lucas Hernandez.

With so much incredible attacking talent on show in the Nations League game, a repeat of the Euro 2016 final, not many would have been expecting a 0-0 draw.

Ronaldo was looking for his 102nd international goal, as he attempts to close in on the Ali Daei's all time record of 109, having failed to score in Wednesday's friendly with Spain.

The Juventus striker had the best chance of the night but it was blocked by Bayern Munich's Hernandez.

And it wasn't the only time the former Atletico Madrid defender got the better of the five time Ballon d'Or winner on the night either.

It wasn't a good night at all for Ronaldo and he remains goalless in games against France. Even in the 2016 final success he went off injured early in the game and his biggest impact was as a cheerleader/coach in the technical area.

On Wednesday he has another chance to add to his incredible goal tally though, when Portugal host Sweden in another Nations League game and, one way or another, you expect him to have smashed the 109 goal mark by the time the Euros ends next summer.
