However, according to the Portuguese Football Association, the five-time World Player of the Year is doing well. “He shows no symptoms and has gone into isolation.” He watched his team from the balcony of his hotel room on Tuesday during a training session.
Ronaldo took part in the entire match at Portugal against France last Sunday. The game in Paris ended in 0-0. Defending champion Portugal leads in group 3 of League A with 7 points, the same as world champions France, which has a slightly less goal difference. Sweden is still winless.

According to the Portuguese Football Association, all other players and staff members of the national selection have undergone a new test on Tuesday after the positive result with captain Ronaldo. All results were negative. This means that national coach Fernando Santos will also have access to all his players for the duel with Sweden in Lisbon.
Due to his positive corona test, Ronaldo will probably also have to miss Juventus’ next league match against Crotone. That game is Saturday. The Italian champion will compete in the Champions League next Tuesday. Dinamo Kiev is the first opponent in the group stage in Ukraine. That match is probably too early for Ronaldo.
