Cristiano Ronaldo, a forward for Al-Nassr and the Portugal national team, will not play in his team’s first friendlies before Euro 2024.

O Jogo claims that Ronaldo will not play in the June 4 encounter against Finland. Following the conclusion of the Saudi Arabian championship, he will be given a week’s break by the national team training staff.

Germany will be hosting the European Championship from June 14–July 14. Turkey, Georgia, and the Czech Republic are going to be Portugal’s group-stage rivals.

In 2023, Ronaldo agreed to a deal with Al-Nassr. The attacker has played in 45 games this season in all competitions, tallying 44 goals and dishing out 13 assists.

One of the all-time greats in football, Cristiano Ronaldo has the record for most goals scored in national team competitions. He was the first professional player in existence to win Serie A in Italy, LaLiga in Spain, and the English Premier League in England.

Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo will remain with Al-Nassr for the upcoming campaign, according to a statement made earlier by the club’s general director, Guido Fienga.

Portugal’s team news for Finland friendly

Tuesday’s lineup might potentially include Bruno Fernandes in midfield following his FA Cup victory with Manchester United, as well as Rafael Leao and Diogo Jota.

Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, and Bernardo Silva of Manchester City are also expected to start for Portugal in this match.

Diogo Dalot may play left back, but Diogo Costa looks set to start in goal. Pepe also looks set to feature as the centre-half.

Joao Palhinha is probably going to start as the holding player for Portugal in the midfield, but during the game, Joao Neves, Vitinha, and Ruben Neves will all be vying for playing time.
