Fernando Santos explained why Ronaldo was left on the side-bench after the 6-1 win.
Switzerland’s players are different. Cristiano Ronaldo was not included in the starting eleven as part of the game strategy. I am yet to explain why Ronaldo was not included in the starting eleven.

I also included Dalot and Raphael. Not because Cancelo isn’t a great player. This is all part of our strategy against Switzerland. There is no problem between Fernando Santos and the team captain (Cristiano Ronaldo). We have been friends for years. Stars sometimes make decisions. It will all be resolved later. His performance against Switzerland is proof that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best captain – said Fernando Santos.

Some point to Ronaldo’s exclusion from the starting XI in the pre-quarter against Switzerland as a clear example of the growing rift between Ronaldo and Santos.
