Well, I wouldn't go so far back. In 2006 we were semi-finalists and lost against France in a very suspicious way (again). Then we lost against Germany for in the match for 3rd place.
But after that, the team has lost some great players who retired from international play (e.g., Luís Figo) and we're struggling to have a good, balanced first team.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not alone with Nani, Pepe, Coentrão, Quaresma who are also very good/great players, but there is definitively a lack of class in the right-back, central midfielder and striker positions.
