Poborský: Ronaldo start would benefit Czechs at Euros

Former Czech footballer Karel Poborský says he hopes superstar Cristiano Ronaldo starts for Portugal against Czechia at Euro 2024 on Tuesday. Poborský told the Czech News Agency on Monday that the fact Ronaldo is now 39 meant he had some shortcomings to his game.

The Czechs beat Portugal through a goal by Poborský at Euro 96.

The two nations meet in what is for both their opening game at the current European Championships on Tuesday evening in Leipzig.
