Portugal are scheduled to play against Sweden in the UEFA Nations League match Wednesday. Before that, the team has been hit hard. The team’s top star Cristiano Ronaldo has tested Covid-19 positive. In a statement, the Portugal Football Federation (PFF) confirmed the matter.

Last week, Ronaldo’s club, Juventus was hit by the Coronavirus. Two co-workers were in the isolation because of the Covid-19 positive. Ronaldo also went. Portugal defender Jose Fonte and Anthony Lopez Corona were also injured after they went to play for the national team. However, the negative came from Ronaldo. However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner came in positive for Tuesday’s test.


Although infected with the coronavirus, Ronaldo has not been diagnosed with any symptoms. But Portugal has already been separated from the national team. All the members of the squad were tested for PCR Tuesday. There are negatives for everyone else in the team except Ronaldo. The team is due to play against Sweden in Lisbon Wednesday.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended from the national team camp for being positive after being tested by the national team for the Covid-19 test,” the PFF said in its statement. “So he can’t play against Sweden. The Portuguese star is healthy. He has no symptoms and is currently in the isolation.”
