The Portugal squad arrived back in Lisbon this morning amid little fanfare, with a small group of fans turning out to welcome home their fallen heroes.
Having finished 3rd in their group, and failing to qualify for the next round on goal difference, the apathy from the Portugal fans was perhaps to be expected, and was probably how the players themselves would have wanted it.
On arrival, Nani, Meireles et al bade farewell and went their separate ways, while Cristiano Ronaldo opted for an interesting mode of transport to get home.
The 2014 Ballon D’Or and Real Madrid star surprised onlookers by hailing a public cab, and throwing his bag in the boot like a common travaler.
Taxi for Ronaldo.
