Ronaldo left off Portugal squad for upcoming matches

Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Portugal squad for their upcoming October internationals against Poland and Scotland at his own request.

Ronaldo denied the allegations on his Twitter account Wednesday. "I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me", he said.

"My clear conscious will thereby allow me to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations", Ronaldo tweeted.

"We agreed the player wouldn't be available, wouldn't be an option for selection", Santos said. What they said today?

Ronaldo's denial came as lawyers for his accuser said they had obtained damning correspondence between the footballer and his legal team.

"She wants justice, of course", he said.

After she refused his demand to perform oral sex and said she wanted to leave, Ronaldo pulled her into a bedroom and anally raped her while she screamed "no, no, no", according to the suit.




Despite the absence of the 33-year-old, Santos reaffirmed he will remain an integral part of the national team's plans going forward.

Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo sticks his tongue out during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group B football match between Portugal and Morocco at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 20, 2018.

Alvaro Morata has scored just one goal for Chelsea in six appearances this season.

Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo, in a 32-page lawsuit filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her on June 13, 2009. Ronaldo played for Juventus in Serie A on Saturday but missed the midweek Champions League fixture against Young Boys after being sent off in the previous fixture against Valencia.

Spain play Wales in a Cardiff friendly next Thursday, before hosting England in a UEFA Nations League tie at Real Betis's Benito Villamarin Stadium the following Sunday.

Barca defender Jordi Alba, however, continues to be overlooked despite showing strong form for his club.
