Cristiano Ronaldo absence due to Covid-19 has not resulted in a change in the Portugal national team’s tactics against Sweden for the fourth matchday of the UEFA Nations League on Thursday (15/10).

“He just said that he wanted to be able to play,” Fernando Santos said at a press conference on Tuesday, responding to questions about his star striker being absent against Sweden. “Any player who has been sidelined because of the coronavirus is a huge loss, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence is probably even bigger [than other players]. But I have absolute faith in the players who will play. “
The Portugal coach went on to emphasize his confidence in the players he has, still going to play with the same tactical plan, while admitting that the absence of the 101-goal scorer for the Selecao had an impact on the dynamics of their game.
“The plan is the same,” Fernando continued Santos. “But the dynamics are different. Cristiano Ronaldo has his own characteristics. There is no better team without the best players in the world. But this team has shown that they have the ability to respond collectively. I have full confidence in my players. “
Since testing positive, the Juventus forward has isolated himself in his room. On Tuesday afternoon, he watched from the balcony as his teammates trained. Other Portuguese players have tested negative for the coronavirus test.
Portugal currently sit at the top of the UEFA Nations League Group A3 standings with seven points from three matches, the same as France after the two drew in Paris last weekend.
Support From Family
Cristiano Ronaldo was immediately flooded with support, especially from his family after he tested positive for the corona virus and had to leave the Portugal national team squad at the Nations League event.
His girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, of course reacted immediately to reports that the Juventus superstar was positive for Covid-19 and had to undergo independent isolation in Portugal, making him unable to return to Italy and reunite with his family.
In a screenshot of a WhatsApp video call between them, Georgina supported her partner by writing a message, “You are my inspiration” and a heart emoji. In the screenshot of the video call, it appears that Cristiano Ronaldo is resting with his head on a pillow when he begins a two-week quarantine, which could put him in danger of failing to appear in the Champions League matchday 1 against Barcelona and Lionel Messi later this month.
