Ronaldo blanked during the international break

The Portuguese press called for the 37-year-old to be dropped ahead of the 1-0 loss to Spain on Tuesday.

One of the country’s biggest publications, A Bola, had the headline: ‘Menos Ronaldo, mais Portugal’, which translates to ‘less Ronaldo, more Portugal’.

Criticism intensified after the loss to Spain robbed Portugal of a place in the last four of the Nations League, and many fans want Diogo Jota or Joao Felix to be ahead for the next Cup of the world.

Ronaldo has played 191 times for his country and holds the record for most international goals with 117.

And his sister, Katia Aveiro, came to the defense of the Red Devils striker with a lengthy post on Instagram.

She said: “He has his family and those who love him by his side. They will always be by his side, no matter what.

“But the current times do not surprise me at all. The Portuguese spit in the plate they eat [from]It has always been like this.

“That’s why when someone rises from the ashes and changes mentalities, it’s disturbing… With you always, my king. Calm.

“We have to give a helping hand to those who have always given their hand in Portugal. But the Portuguese are sick, petty, soulless, stupid, ungrateful and forever ungrateful. This guy who’s sitting, he’s on his knees… There’s no one to give him a hand.

“It’s cruel. And it was already so much, but so much that he gave and gave. The one sitting there is called Cristiano Ronaldo and he is simply the best player in the world.
