Ronaldo Comments On His Portugal Future

Having not played for his country since the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has now commented on his future with the Portugal national team.
 
 
Ronaldo, 33, has not featured for his nation Portugal since they were knocked out by Uruguay in the last 16 at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with A Selecao participating in the inaugural edition of the UEFA Nations League without their captain.
 
The former Real Madrid star reportedly agreed with the Portuguese Football Federation to let him rest in the first half of the 2018/19 season to afford him time and space to settle in at his new club in Italy.
 
Portugal will be hosting the UEFA Nations League finals after qualifying for the semi-finals, finishing top of Group A3.
 
They were awarded the right to host the inaugural mini-tournament in June 2019 after topping the group ahead of Italy and Poland, both of whom had expressed interest in hosting.
 
"In 2019, I intend to be back at the disposal of the (national team) coaching staff," Ronaldo told Portuguese publication Record, according to FourFourTwo.
 
"It was agreed that I would not be in the games of the first half of the season. I am 33 years old, I had just moved from country to country, working methods, teammates, professional and personal routines.
 
"I think it was the best option."
