According to “Eviralnews“, during the live broadcast of this match, the BBC accompanied the scene of Cristiano Ronaldo's missed penalty with the subtitle “Mistiano Penaldo” (a mocking combination of the words “Mr. Goal” and “Penalty”). This move made Ronaldo's fans angry and upset, who expressed their anger by storming social networks. John Terry, the former defender of Chelsea and the England national team, also expressed his anger and called the BBC a “disgrace”.

The BBC finally responded to these criticisms by publishing a statement: “The caption was simply intended as a play on words, something we've done many times in our match analysis section of the Matchday programme. No offense intended towards Cristiano Ronaldo. In fact, he was spoken about in a positive tone many times during the program, including:

In the pre-game segment, where Jose Fonte, referring to Ronaldo's commitment to training, said that “That's why he's one of the best ever.”

At half-time, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer analyzed Ronaldo's moves in detail, describing it as “absolutely fantastic”.

After the penalty shootout, both Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer noted Ronaldo's courage and self-belief to step up and take the penalty.

The BBC continued its statement: “In no part of the program were the pundits overly critical of Ronaldo and the overall tone of the program was respectful towards him. However, we understand that some viewers were unhappy with the subtitles and this feedback has been passed on to the production team for consideration in future work.”

With the Euro 2024 campaign coming to an end, 39-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo will enjoy a well-timed holiday before returning to the country to begin pre-season with Saudi Arabia's Al-Nasr ahead of the 2024-25 season.
