Ronaldo to miss all Portugal’s autumn internationals: coach

Ronaldo to miss all Portugal’s autumn internationals: coach

Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Portugal squad for their upcoming worldwide matches after an investigation into rape allegations against the 33-year-old was reopened this week.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said the decision to omit Ronaldo was made with him, the player and the head of the Portuguese soccer federation.

Ronaldo - arguably the best player in the world - was left off the roster for an October 11 match against Poland and an October 14 game against Scotland.

He did not divulge the reason for Ronaldo's absence in the near-term, but did say he would return to action for Portugal eventually. Goncalo Guedes, Andre Silva, and Bernardo Silva are among the top attack options.

The Juventus forward has been in the headlines this week over an investigation into an alleged rape case from 2009 - claims that Ronaldo vehemently denies.

Ronaldo, who has scored three goals and set up four others in seven Serie A starts for Juve, has not featured for the national team since Portugal's round-of-16 World Cup defeat against Uruguay.

She claims in the court papers that Ronaldo apologized to her after he raped her, according to the Sun.

The show is based on the feature films starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as a pair mimatched Los Angeles police detectives. Asked by his off-camera interviewer, "So you're over it?" "I'm going to return to the stage and try to find my smile again".

Las Vegas police this week said they were reopening a case filed on that date but did not identify the victim or the alleged perpetrator by name.

"I believe what he said. because I've known Ronaldo for many years and I can attest to his good character", Gomes said.

She said she filed a rape report with Las Vegas police the next day, according to the paper.

The story came back to light after German magazine Der Spiegel published an interview with Mayorga on September 29.

Meanwhile, Kathryn's lawyer told the reporters that Kathryn left for Las Vegas to evade media scrutiny.

At the moment, the publisher has no plans to replace Ronaldo as the cover star of its hit soccer game, though that could change as the investigation goes on, depending on the results.

"She has decided not to make herself available to the media and stay out of the public because of her emotional state", attorney Leslie Stovall said. A Portuguese citizen, he went from the U.K's Manchester United to Spain's Real Madrid in 2009 for a then-record sum of 94 million euros, or about $130 million.
