It was a night to forget for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as he failed to fire Portugal to Euro 2016 glory against Austria on Saturday. 

Ronaldo, 31, may well be recognised as one of the best players on the planet, but he missed a number of fine chances, including a penalty, during the stalemate in Paris. 

The former Manchester United man has already racked up 21 shots in just two games in the tournament, but he's yet to find the back of the net.

Despite his failure in front of goal, he was a constant threat throughout the fixture and could have scored three or four goals on another day. 

He clearly grew frustrated but certainly didn't stop attempting to score that all-important first goal. On this occasion, however, it just wasn't meant to be. 

Ronaldo rating 

As you can imagine, there has been a great deal of fallout in the aftermath of the contest...

And L'Equipe's player ratings from the game certainly make interesting reading. While Portugal midfielder William Carvalho was handed a rating of 7 (out of 10), Ronaldo received a rating of 3. That doesn't happen too often. 

Mail writer Oliver Holt insisted that the rating was harsh, but it's safe to say that not too many people agreed with his verdict on social media. 

Ronaldo and co. will now be gearing up for a huge contest against Hungary. After two disappointing draws, Portugal can cement their place into the knockout stages of the tournament with a victory.
