Ronaldo And Portugal Give Bookies £2m Headache!

Cristiano Ronaldo fired Portugal into the semi finals of the Euros and William Hill now make them 5/1 third favourites to win the tournament behind Germany at 2/1 and Spain at 5/2. Hills paid out between £1.5 and £2 million on the match after taking on Ronaldo and Portugal, with a £700,000 payout on their industry top price of 2/1 on the talismanic winger scoring and Portugal winning.

“After England/Ukraine, this is our second worst result of the Euros and we’ll certainly be cheering on Greece tomorrow,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Ronaldo is the runaway favourite (at 5/2) to win player of the tournament with 2/1 offered that he ends the tournament as top scorer and 1/2 he wins the Ballon D’or.
