Without Ronaldo no team is complete: Santos

Portugal manager Fernando Santos expelled proposals that Portugal put in an enhanced execution because of Cristiano Ronaldo’s nonappearance from their 3-2 prevail upon Poland.

Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva scored either side of Kamil Glik’s to seal a second win in the Nations League for Portugal, who top their gathering.

Ronaldo was not picked for this round of world appearance, in the midst of assault charges – which the 33-year-old has firmly denied – following an episode in a Las Vegas inn in 2009.

Be that as it may, Santos demanded that his side were not happier without the Juventus star.

“No group can be better without the best on the planet, it’s not worth discussing who’s not there,” Santos told columnists.

“At the point when Cristiano plays, he is further developed on the left side and gives us greater capacity to wrap up.

“When he plays we need to discover an answer for kick it into high gear the ball to him and when he comes inside we must have a player to cover on the left. This is the means by which we will proceed.

“We began very much, controlled the ball, yet surrendered a goal. It could have been a troublesome time however the group remained quiet, controlled the rhythms.

“We scored the third goal and after that there was a little issue with losing the ball in hazardous zones. We had a ton of issues.

“Portugal has just a single center, to win, the outcomes in authority matches demonstrate this.

“We don’t get the opportunity to be an European hero without needing to win. A couple of times [we are] more guarded, others more hostile, yet you need to shield well, else you won’t win.”
