Santos has opted to rest Ronaldo following the World Cup, and the European champions have been doing just fine with the forward – A Selecao are unbeaten in five matches, and were the first team to advance to the UEFA Nations League semi-finals.

Despite Ronaldo's lengthy absence from the squad, Santos has insisted the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is still a member of the side.

"There is no doubt. If you still have doubts, I don't know," Santos told reporters, according to FourFourTwo.

"But Cristiano Ronaldo is part of this team."

 
Ronaldo is the holder of the records for the most goals and the most appearances for Portugal, with 85 strikes and 154 caps.
