Portugal’s most expensive player, Cristiano Ronaldo, has missed the plane taking his team mates home from Ukraine after their semi-final exit at Euro 2012.
"The organizers of the flight asked me if I wanted to sit in the tail of the plane. And I said: ‘yes’,” Cristiano told the Ukraine-2012 information center. “Sometimes I sit in first, second or third zone. But I agreed to fly in the fifth. Then I went to a cafe to buy a bun, and the plane took off without me. It's not fair! "
Portuguese head coach, Paulo Bento, said that he noticed the absence of his star when it was too late, so Ronaldo had to spend several hours in the Donetsk airport.
"Buying than bun was a mistake," the Real Madrid player laughed.
Portugal lost to Spain on penalties in Euro 2012 semis, but Ronaldo is still leading the top player rankings at the tournament.
The 25-year-old has scored three goals in five appearances at the European championships and was named the Man of the Match twice.
