Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Portugal’s Nations League game against Sweden on Wednesday after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
And according to a statement from the Portuguese Football Federation (PFF), the Juventus forward is “doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation“.
The rest of the squad, however, all returned negative results after being tested on Tuesday and are available for the Group A3 match in Lisbon.
The PFF confirms in a statement: “Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol.
“The game (against Sweden), counting for the qualification phase of the Nations League, is scheduled for Wednesday, at 19:45, in Alvalade.”
Ronaldo has played in both of Portugal’s matches so far during the international break, starting in a friendly against Spain in Lisbon and then playing the full game in their 0-0 draw with France on Sunday.
The goalless draw in Paris against France means Portugal tops the group on goal difference ahead of France who are also on seven points.
Wednesday’s opponents Sweden are bottom of the group, having failed to pick up a single point from their first three matches.
Ronaldo became the first European player to reach 100 international goals after scoring twice in Portugal’s 2-0 win against Sweden in the reverse fixture in September. He has his sights set on Iranian Ali Daei’s record for a male international of 109 goals.
