The Portuguese Football Federation has announced a decision they made that will benefit Cristiano Ronaldo in the current season. As we all know how worrisome the FIFA virus is, but all thanks to Portugal’s crucial decision that might leave Ronaldo unaffected by the FIFA syndrome.
With the March international break fast approaching, it could change many clubs’ landscape overnight. It usually appears that many players who make trips to represent their countries tend to get injured and as a result affect their club’s title chances directly. In the March international break, Portugal was supposed to face off against Azerbaijan at home and Serbia away.
As the European World Cup Qualifiers will begin, Portugal is forced to come up with a neutral venue for both games because of the country’s Covid-19 restrictions. This gave Juventus a chance to think of their top player and quickly offered Allianz Stadium as the place for Ronaldo’s Portugal to play. With most of the players traveling to Italy, Cristiano Ronaldo will now have more time to rest.
Portugal’s Crucial Decision Leaves Ronaldo With A Clear Advantage
Let’s say that Juventus won’t get eliminated by Porto in the Champions League, this decision will leave Ronaldo with a clear advantage compared to all his rivals. Because as most of the players will have to travel to represent their countries, Cristiano Ronaldo will not. With this in mind, it can become one of the major factors to help the Bianconeri fight for the Champions League and other titles as the season gets congested.
Meanwhile, details like this tend to be the ones that decide which clubs finish the season stronger and which ones crumble down in the end. And as it stands right now, fortune smiles upon Ronaldo and his goal of winning the sixth UEFA Champions League trophy that will tie him with Paco Gento as the highest winner of the competition in history. At the same time, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will be fighting to take Portugal to another World Cup in 2022.
