Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of Portugal’s squad for the coming friendly matches against the United States and Saudi Arabia.

The national team captain will be given a rest for the two fixtures scheduled for 10 and 14 November. Veterans Ricardo Quaresma and Nani were also left out of the squad by manager Fernando Santos. The coach said the reasons for the high-profile omissions varied, adding he wanted to give some fringe players the opportunity to impress before he chooses the final 23 for next year’s World Cup.
