However, some clubs have not released players to play for their countries, including Austrian side RB Salzburg whose players were called up for Mali, Cameroon, Zambia, Austria and Hungary.

On Monday, Ronaldo posted a photo of him sharing a meal with his Portugal teammates on his social media pages.

The forward has scored three league goals in two games for Juventus so far this season, one against Sampdoria and a brace against AS Roma.

With his first goal against Sweden, Ronaldo became the second player ever to reach the milestone of 100 international goals.

He is now eight goals behind the all-time international record of 109 set by Iranian Ali Daei.

Earlier this year, Ronaldo flew back to his native Madeira when coronavirus cases started to rise across Europe and football was suspended, according to Reuters.

He then helped Juventus lift the Serie A title following the league’s resumption.
