Cristiano Ronaldo missed a late penalty as Portugal were held to a scoreless draw in their Euro 2016 clash against Austria on Saturday night, leaving their chances of winning Group F in serious doubt.

Austria held out for 78 minutes before Martin Hinteregger hauled down Ronaldo in the penalty area, but the Portugal captain could only strike the base of the left post with his effort from 12 yards.
