Real Madrid's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo gave a rousing speech to his teammates in the dressing room at half-time in the Champions League final on May 28 2016.

Ronaldo looks to inspire Real Madrid in the Champions League final

Cristiano Ronaldo looked to inspire his Real Madrid teammates at half-time in the dressing room in the San Siro in the Champions League final 2016 against Atlético Madrid.

Real Madrid were leading 1-0 at half-time, thanks to a Sergio Ramos goal after 15 minutes. The reference to "we'll catch them out", is likely talking about hitting Atlético Madrid on the break, as Simeone's men would be pushing up looking to equalise. 

Despite Ronaldo's speech, Atleti did level, with Carrasco scoring on 79 minutes. The game went to injury time and then penalties, where Ronaldo stroked home the winning spot-kick.

Here's the transcript of Ronaldo's speech, which isn't quite Henry V at Agincourt, but got a rousing round of applause from the Real Madrid dressing room: 

Listen, I want to say something:

We're 45 minutes from making history.

Tiredness is psychological sometimes.

We need to play another 45 flat out. We can because we're fine.

It's mental. We're 45 from making history.

We defend as we've defended in the first half.

Let's go! Let's go!

Stick together. [Applause]

Relax, stick together, we'll catch them out, of course we'll catch them out, you'll see.
