The Brondby man insinuated that the Real Madrid attacker, who was positioned on the left wing by the Seleccao, is not the best when it comes to tracking backEXCLUSIVE
Michael Krohn-Dehli was bitterly disappointed after he felt that his side's effective exploitation of Cristiano Ronaldo's defensive deficiencies ultimately went to waste as Denmark suffered a dramatic 3-2 defeat at the hands of Portugal in Lviv on Wednesday.
Morten Olsen's men found themselves 2-0 down after just 36 minutes of play in an absorbing Euro 2012 Group B clash but they battled their way back into the game and Nicklas Bendtner drew the Scandinavians level with two headers.
However, Silvestre Varela decided the game in Portugal's favour with just three minutes to go, leaving Krohn-Dehli and his colleagues disconsolate.
"I thought we played very well," the Brondby winger told Goal.com. "After we went behind 2-0, we started playing really well and we found spaces really well, especially behind Ronaldo. He's better going towards the goal than going backwards.
"I thought that when we made it 2-2 it was deserved. I thought we were very good, especially in the second half.
"We could have had a point, but you always need luck, and this time we didn't have the luck on our side. It's a pity."
Denmark will now go into their final game in Group B, against table-toppers Germany, third in the standings but level on points with second-placed Portugal, who face Netherlands.
