Euro 2024: It’ll help you grow – Rafael Leao sends message to Felix after penalty miss

Portugal and AC Milan winger, Rafael Leao has sent an inspiring message for Joao Felix.

Felix missed his penalty during the shootout in their Euro 2024 quarter-final shootout against France on Friday.

France ran away 5-4 winners to set up a semifinal clash with Spain who earlier eliminated the host nation, Germany from the competition.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder was the only Portugal player to miss a penalty, while France scored all five of theirs.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Leao said “Learning. It’s a learning experience. It will help you grow. I want to say a few words to Joao Felix, who brings different things that football doesn’t have.

“Despite having a bad episode, he’s an incredible talent and will bounce back.”

“Penalties are a lottery. Whoever was there had personality, you can’t point fingers, they had a bad day, it will hurt, but you have to look at it as a learning experience and respond because it will help us in the future.” he added.
