Ronaldo Included In Real's Super Cup Squad
Cristiano Ronaldo Included In Real Madrid's UEFA Super Cup Squad
Spanish giants Real Madrid have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo has been included in their squad for their UEFA Super Cup clash against Manchester United on Tuesday.
It was widely reported that the Portuguese superstar would not be part of the squad that would face his former cub after being given an extended break following Portugal's participation in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
The 32-year-old missed Real's entire pre-season tour of the United States, and only returned to squad training this past weekend.
Ronaldo played a crucial role in his team's UEFA Champions League triumph in June, scoring twice in Los Blancos' 4-1 win over Serie A giants Juventus in the final.
Real Madrid are the current holders of the Super Cup – they beat Sevilla 3-2 in extra time of the 2016 edition – and manager Zinedine Zidane will be looking for his fourth European trophy in less than two years at the club.
The Spanish giants confirmed their squad for the match on Twitter on Monday morning, and it includes the likes of Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
The game will be played at the Philip II National Arena in Macedonia at 8.45pm on 8 August.
