- Cristiano Ronaldo has been recalled to the national team for the 2020 Euro qualifiers
- Ronaldo last played for Portugal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia
- He has missed his country's last two games against Italy and Poland
Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been recalled to the Portuguese national team for the first time since he played at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
After the 2018 World Cup, Portugal played against Italy and Poland in September and November respectively in which Ronaldo was excluded.
But the former Real Madrid star has now made a return to the national team after being named in the squad that will face Ukraine in the 2020 Euro qualifiers.
Ronaldo is Portugal's all-time record appearance maker and goalscorer with 154 caps and 85 goals.
He scored four goals in the group stage of the World Cup, including a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw with Spain, before Portugal were sent out by Uruguay.
Portugal will begin their campaign at home to Ukraine on March 22 before they host Serbia three days later on March 25.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Rio Ferdinand described Cristiano Ronaldo as a "living god" following his heroics in Juventus Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.
The Bianconeri needed to overturn the two-goal deficit in the first leg suffered at the hands of Diego Simeone's side at Wanda Metropolitano.
