Opinion: Ronaldo Taking All Penalties For Portugal Might Be The Reason Why Bruno Wants To Take Penalties At Club

The FIFA World Cup qualifier match between Portugal vs Luxembourg has ended with Portugal thrashing Luxembourg 5-nil. The match was full of thrills and drama as Portugal earned Penalty Kicks twice under five minutes during the match. Portugal earned their first and second penalty of the match in the eight and thirteen minutes and the two penalties were converted by Cristiano Ronaldo. The match ended 5-nil with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the number one penalty taker for Portugal. Being the captain, Ronaldo takes almost all penalties for Portugal. He only shares penalties with other players on a few occasions. Many had hoped that Ronaldo would allow Bruno Fernandez to take the second penalty in tonight's match but he refuse to share the penalties with him and converted them all. 

In tonight's match, Ronaldo could have shared the second penalty with Bruno Fernandez but playing most of the penalties for Portugal might be the reason why Bruno Fernandez also refuse to allow him to play the penalty at Manchester United. Bruno Fernandez is the number one penalty taker for Manchester United and has also refused to allow Ronaldo to take penalties since joining the club. 

Recall that during Aston Villa vs Manchester United English Premier League match, Bruno Fernandez refused to allow Cristiano Ronaldo to take the penalty. He held the ball immediately after the penalty was won and refused to allow Cristiano Ronaldo to take the penalty. Bruno Fernandez blasted the penalty away which culminated in a Manchester United loss to Aston Villa. He however achieved his aim by refusing to allow Ronaldo to take the penalty. 

Ronaldo seems to have taken the spotlight and this might be the reason why Bruno Fernandez refuses to allow him to take penalties at Manchester United. If Portugal were awarded the third penalty in the match, Ronaldo may still be the one to take it.
