Ronaldo will not play against Switzerland in the Nations League match
MOSCOW, June 12 – Forward Cristiano Ronaldo was not included in Portugal’s squad for the fourth round match of the League of Nations against the Swiss team, said the head coach of the Portuguese Fernando Santos.
League A group 2 match will be held on Sunday in Geneva (beginning – 21:45 Moscow time). Wolverhampton Wolverhampton midfielder Joao Moutinho and Borussia Dortmund defender Rafael Guerreiro were also not included in the application.
“They don’t have any health problems. It makes no sense to go to matches with all 26 players when only 23 are included in the application. These players will miss the match this time, that’s all,” Santos was quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.
The Portuguese national team leads the standings with 7 points in three matches. The Swiss (0 points) are in last, fourth place.
