Granit Xhaka says that 'there is not much you can do' about Cristiano Ronaldo after having given him his hat goal
Granit Xhaka has said in a scandalous way that Cristiano Ronaldo "cannot do much" after giving away the goal of his hat-trick in the defeat of Switzerland 3-1 against Portugal. Ronaldo was inspired by the shape of the Estadio do Dragao, as Portugal reserved their place in the final of the League of Nations where they will face the Netherlands or England. Switzerland surprised when Ronaldo found the corner of Yann Sommer's net with an unstoppable free-kick in the 25th minute before Ricardo Rodriguez equalized from the penalty spot midway through the second half. Ronaldo swept home Bernardo Silva's cross to put Portugal back on the front before Xhaka's lackluster game led the host's third goal.

The Arsenal midfielder clumsily lost possession just after the halfway line, allowing Portugal to separate from the counter and Ronaldo with a sublime curly finish to kill the tie. Incredibly, after the defeat of Switzerland, Xhaka had the nerve to tell his Instagram followers: "Really proud of our performance and the progress we are making, sometimes there is not much you can do when Ronaldo scores such a special Hattrick. '

Ronaldo's hat-trick lifted his Portugal tally to 88 goals in 157 games. The Juventus superstar is only behind Ali Dae of Iran in the list of international goal scorers of all time. Surprisingly, his hat-trick on Wednesday night was the 53rd of his career for clubs and countries. Speaking after the final whistle, Xhaka said: 'It's amazing. What player is [Ronaldo]. He is not, at all, one of the best players in the world. It's special because he always knows where you have to go and be. We had it in our hands, but in the end, he. we scored three times and we lost this game, but we can be proud of how we have a very good team against '.

When asked if Ronaldo is the best player in the world, Xhaka replied: "In my opinion, you have two of them." They are not in the world. 'If you play 34 at this level, then you deserve a lot of respect.'
