Postiga: No problem with Ronaldo

Portugal striker Helder Postiga says there is ‘no problem’ with Cristiano Ronaldo and believes the goals will come for the Real Madrid forward.

Ronaldo has come under fire after failing to score in his side’s 1-0 defeat to Germany or in their last-gasp 3-2 win over Denmark in Portugal’s second Group B match.

Portugal now face Netherlands in their third match and will advance to the last eight if they win, unless Denmark can secure an unlikely 3-2 success against Germany.

A draw could also see Portugal progress, providing Denmark do not beat Germany, while a single-goal defeat would see Paulo Bento’s men advance if Joachim Loew’s side down the Danes.

Whatever happens in Kharkiv on Sunday, Portugal will look to Ronaldo – and Postiga hopes his team-mate can come good when it matters most.

“Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t have any problem,” the Zaragoza striker told Goal.com. “People talk about his drought in front of goal, but it will come.

“We have to give him confidence and keep playing as a unit, like we are now.”

“We won’t take anything for granted against the Dutch. They are searching for a miracle, but we will play with intelligence, in the knowledge that we can go through.

“Getting to the quarter-finals is in our hands and we can’t fail.”
