Football: Cristiano Ronaldo Emitted From Portugal Squad Amid Legal Controversy

Cristiano Ronaldo

The Juventus winger and arguably one of the best footballers on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo will not feature in Portugal’s international matches this month.

Previously, the Juventus star was rested from the Portugal squad for the international matches in September. The Portuguese team’s manager Santos explained the reason behind Ronaldo’s non-inclusion which was that the player required time to adjust to his transfer to Juventus from Real Madrid.

However, in October, Ronaldo’s non-inclusion might be due to an alleged rape allegation, made by Kathryn Mayorga. Cristiano Ronaldo has blatantly denied the accusation and has stated that he has a clear conscience.

Real Madrid lost their top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, as the 5-time Ballon d’Or victor made his way to to the Italian club, Juventus for a whopping transfer fee of £99.2 million.

At present, Ronaldo has scored a total of 85 goals in 154 matches for Portugal, and is their highest goal scorer of all time.

Portugal have a match scheduled against Poland in the ongoing UEFA Nations League on 11th October, and after that, Portugal will play a friendly match against Scotland.
