LONDON: Cristiano Ronaldo has been excluded from the national squad after leading the team to an important and difficult victory at the expense of Ireland 2-1 yesterday, Wednesday, in the first European qualifying round for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. AND the British news agency (BA Media) reported that the 36-year-old has established a record scoring the 110th goal in his international career, scoring the equalizer after John Eggen switched to the Irish national team a minute after kick-off on Wednesday. Ronaldo took off his shirt to celebrate the goal, cautioned by Slovenian referee Mate Juj, of receiving a yellow card after missing next Tuesday’s game against Azerbaijan. And the Portuguese Federation declared in a statement on his official website: “The yellow card Ronaldo received against Ireland became his second in qualifying, so he was forced to miss the next official match, which will be against Azerbaijan.” Portugal’s list means that he will not participate in the next match against Azerbaijan National Qatar, host of the next edition of the World Cup, in the friendly match to be held in Hungary, although there is no official date for entry to Manchester United training, which has signed for the second time in career earlier this week.
