"I Still Regret Today That I Didn't Give Ronaldo a Blow" - Stephen Hunt Reveals Moment With Ronaldo

The former Ireland international has played against the Portuguese five times, each time for Reading FC against Manchester United, and admits that the only regret he has is not giving him a shot.

The day Portugal and the Republic of Ireland met at the Algarve Stadium in the 2022 World Cup qualifier, Stephen Hunt recalled the times he faced Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Maybe it was his presence that put me off. It was also a long time ago, without VAR, so I could have gotten out of it. I still regret today that I didn't hit him, but at the same time he had a certain aura," he added.

“When you are next to Ronaldo, you will understand what I mean. He has a great presence. I remember playing against him and thinking, okay, I have my chance to throw him off, but I didn't. I could have done it, but I didn't," he said in an interview with the UK portal OTB Sports.
