WHAT HAPPENED? As the international break began, the former Real Madrid forward expected to be involved in two games for the Portuguese national team as they faced off against Slovakia and Luxembourg in their Group J qualifiers for Euro 2024. However, after receiving a yellow card in the first game against Slovakia, the Portuguese captain missed out on the Luxembourg clash. Ronaldo stayed with the national team, however, and is now back training with Al-Nassr.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 38-year-old has had a wonderful start to the season with Al-Nassr having scored six goals in the first four games while also gathering four assists. Al-Nassr on the other hand, however, hasn't exactly had the best start with just nine points in the first five games.

WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO? The Portuguese will be involved with Al-Nassr in their game away to Al-Raed on Saturday, September 16.
