Cristiano Ronaldo is the most- limited Portuguese player and the top men’s transnational goalscorer of all time

The Portuguese Football Federation( FPF) on Thursday denied Cristiano Ronaldo hovered to abandon the World Cup team after being benched against Switzerland. The 37- time-old striker was unexpectedly dropped for the last 16 clash on Tuesday, with his relief Goncalo Ramos netting a chapeau- trick in the 6- 1 palm. Ronaldo appeared from the bench, but a report from Portuguese publication Record said the striker had preliminarily hovered to leave in a tense discussion with trainer Fernando Santos.

” The FPF clarifies that at no time did the captain of the Selecao, Cristiano Ronaldo, hang to leave the public platoon during the stay in Qatar,” said the confederation.

” Every day Ronaldo is erecting up a unique track record at the service of the public platoon and the country, which must be admired.”

The FPF said Ronaldo’s appearance against Switzerland was a farther demonstration of his commitment to the cause.

Ronaldo is the most- limited Portuguese player and the top men’s transnational goalscorer of all time.

Portugal face Morocco on Saturday in the quarter- tests, where Ramos may again get the nod over Ronaldo.

The five- time Ballond’Or winner didn’t train with the other backups on Wednesday after the game, rather taking part in a spa session alongside the starters against Switzerland.
