Cristiano Ronaldo watched helplessly as the penalty shootout drama passed him by.
The Portugal captain, and star attraction at the European Championship, stood slightly apart from his teammates on Wednesday as they watched Spain advance to the final. The defending champions won the shootout 4-2 after a 0-0 draw.
Ronaldo never even got to take his kick.
Ronaldo was fifth in line to step up to the spot _ a strategy rendered worthless when the Spanish, who kicked first, sent their fifth man Cesc Fabregas to seal victory.
However, Portugal coach Paulo Bento says "I don't regret anything" about the order of penalty takers.
Bento says: "We had defined before what would be the best conditions to succeed."
