Cristiano Ronaldo headlines star-studded Portugal selection


Fresh from becoming the first-ever European player to score 100 international goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is once again the headline name in the latest Portugal squad. 

The reigning European champions will take part in three international fixtures this month, when they host Spain in a friendly before facing France and Sweden in a set of UEFA Nations League encounters. 

Ronaldo, whose brace against the Swedes last month saw him break the century mark for goals scored at international level, is the star turn in a squad that also includes the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Diogo Jota.
