In the style of Messi, Ronaldo will miss the Portugal national team, but “partially”

The Record newspaper reported that Cristiano Ronaldo will not participate in the friendly match between Portugal and Sweden at the beginning of the international break this March.

Although “The Don” is not suffering from any injury, coach Roberto Martinez decided to rest 7 players, including them, and they will then participate in the Slovenia match.

The names that will not participate in the Sweden match on Thursday, in addition to Ronaldo, include Diogo Dalot, Joao Cancelo, Danilo Pereira, Otavio, Ruben Neves, Vitinha, and Joao Felix.

The 39-year-old is scheduled to join the Portugal camp after the Sweden match, and is expected to be present without problems in the Slovenia match.

Joao Cancelo is facing personal crises in the current period, which led to his absence from Barcelona’s last match against Atletico Madrid, but he also expects to end it and return in the match against Slovenia.

It remains to be noted that Ronaldo concluded his participation in the Saudi League before the international break without any major crises during his leadership of Al-Nasr to victory over Al-Ahly 1-0 last Friday.

It seems that this international break is witnessing the absence of legends, as Lionel Messi is also away from the Argentine national team, but throughout the camp period and due to injury, unlike Ronaldo, who is only being rested.
