Ronaldo to skip Italy qualifier?

Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly skip Portugal’s Nations League match against Italy as his focus is on Juventus.

According to ItaSportPress, Ronaldo believes it is ‘more important’ to concentrate on Juve, who are his ‘priority’ right now.

The 33-year-old has failed to score in his opening two Serie A appearances for the Bianconeri, and the website explains he will use the international break to ‘better integrate himself’ into his new club.

Consequently, Portugal’s all-time top goalscorer and captain should miss the clash with Italy on September 10, as well as his country’s friendly against World Cup runners-up Croatia four days before.
