Portugal veteran defender, Pepe, has reacted to his side’s Euro 2024 defeat to France.

Pepe featured as France knocked Portugal out of the quarter-final of the Euro 2024 on Friday.

Recall that France won the last-8 clash 5-3 on penalties.

Speaking to the media after the game, the former Real Madrid star said Portugal must go through a “process of pain and sadness.”

“I will have time to talk, first we have to go through the process of pain and sadness, it is part of it. We all want to win for our country, we are unable to give that joy to the people, but unfortunately, football is like that,” Pepe said (via Ojogo).

“Four or five days ago we won on penalties and today we lost. We have to give strength to our teammates and believe in the process, we are on the right path,” he added.
