Ronaldo was left disappointed by his side's exit, appearing to confirm the birth of his two boys and that he would miss the third place play-off on Sunday.

However, Portuguese media outlet SIC claim that he's had a son and a daughter, named Mateo and Eva.

"I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two children were born," he wrote on Facebook.

"Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese.
