    HE'S RON HIS WAY HOME

    Cristiano Ronaldo will not be in Portugal for his country's clash with Sweden this evening, as he departed on an air ambulance this afternoon.

    After testing positive for coronavirus, the 35-year-old flew back to Italy to begin his self-isolation at his home in Turin.

    Not only will his national side have to cope without him for this evening's clash, but Juventus will be without him for their trip to Crotone in Serie A this weekend as well as their Champions League group stage opener against Dynamo Kiev.

    GOOD EVENING!

    Portugal will be without their star man for their meeting with Sweden after Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive for coronavirus.

    The Juventus forward has withdrawn from the squad for this evening’s showdown in Lisbon so will have to wait a little longer to break the all-time international goal scoring record.

    France hosted Portugal earlier this week, in a fixture that saw the world champions and European champions come up against one another, but it resulted in a goalless draw and a surprisingly dull game.

    While Ronaldo featured in the match at the Stade de France, the regular testing for the virus has halted his participation for the remainder of the international break.

    It will be down to his team-mates to ensure they remain top of their group as they host a Sweden side who have yet to claim a point in the competition.

    In the last meeting of these two sides in September, Portugal bagged two goals – Ronaldo, of course, claimed one of them- but will they be able to do the same this evening?
