The years pass and Cristiano Ronaldo remains an essential member of the Selecçao.
The season is coming to an end but for the internationals, a few dates will have to be honored in June, notably on the road to Euro 2024. After having logically dominated Liechtenstein (4-0) and Luxembourg (0-6), the Portugal will try to confirm against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 17 in Lisbon, then in Iceland on June 20. Two matches in which Cristiano Ronaldo will certainly take part.
If Joao Mario has retired from international football, this is not the case for the Al-Nassr striker, who has 38 springs on the clock and intends to continue his career in the flag. Roberto Martinez for these two upcoming matches will also rely on Parisians Danilo Pereira, Renato Sanches and Vitinha. Young Wolverhampton defender Toti Gomes is called up for the first time.
