Cristiano Ronaldo's hunger for victory could determine Euro outcome says Diego Maradona


Not only would Euro 2016 be a first trophy for Ronaldo in Portugal's colours, it would also represent Portugal's first major honours.

Many are tipping France to take the final with Fernando Santos' men not having plotted an all too convincing route to the Paris showpiece.

However, Maradona believes that Ronaldo has the ability to inspire greatness from his teammates and pull off the upset.

"It's not all about strategy in big games. Wanting something badly is big motivation," said Maradona.

"Playing a second final at 31, Ronaldo won't get a better chance at international glory.

"How badly he wants it could determine the distance between France and yet another successful home run."
