Cristiano Ronaldo will not participate, on Tuesday evening, in the World Cup round of 16 match between Portugal and Switzerland.

A big surprise within the Portuguese squad. This Tuesday, in the round of 16 of the World Cup against Switzerland, Cristiano Ronaldo will start on the bench. To general surprise, Fernando Santos preferred that Gonzalo Ramos occupy the front of the attack in front of El Nati.

Two hypotheses can be put forward to explain this radical decision on the part of Lusitano's coach. Either way, as 70% of Portuguese fans surveyed over the weekend believe, CR7 no longer has the level to start a World Cup match. also, This is a sporting penalty against the person who objected to being substituted during the last match against South Korea. Santos said on Monday that he did not like his star's behavior at all after watching footage of him leaving the field.

Cristiano Ronaldo has not been a substitute in a World Cup match since 2006 and the not-so-difficult group stage match against Mexico. In the other 20 matches he played in the World Championship (in five editions), he was always a starter from the start. A position he may not appreciate at all.
