Cristiano Ronaldo has hit out at Iceland after the European Championship debutants held Portugal to a 1-1 draw.
Ronaldo accused the north Atlantic nation, population 323,000, of having a "small mentality" after celebrating a point in Saint-Etienne. He said: "I thought they'd won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end, it was unbelievable.

When they don't try to play and just defend, defend, defend, this in my opinion shows a small mentality and why they are not going to do anything in the competition.
"It was a little bit frustrating, we tried hard to win the game, Iceland didn't try anything," Ronaldo added. "They scored a goal, they created two chances in the 90 minutes and otherwise they got every player behind the ball, they put the bus in the net, so it's difficult when one team don't try but Portugal try and play football and try to win the game." Ronaldo struggled to escape the attentions of marker Kari Arnasonof - a Rotherham United player - and missed a straightforward headed chance to win the game late on. He was clearly angry after the match, and indeed was accused of failing to shake hands with Icelandic players after the final whistle.
