Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Portugal squad to face Italy in the Nations League despite earlier reports that suggested he would be included.

The Azzurri must beat Fernando Santos’ side to have any hope of advancing to the finals, and it was rumoured the Juventus man would return for the crunch game. Santos has named his squad this afternoon though, with Ronaldo not included.

His Juventus teammate Joao Cancelo is in the squad, as is Napoli’s Mario Rui and Joao Mario of Inter.
