Rape slur: Cristiano Ronaldo left out of Portugal squad


Lisbon(Portugal): Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Portugal squad for upcoming international matches against Poland and Scotland, amid ongoing rape allegations against him.

The investigation into the rape allegations against soccer star was reopened this week. The 33-year-old has been accused of raping Kathryn Mayorga. According to Mayorga’s allegations, the Juventus star raped her in Las Vegas in 2009 while she repeatedly screamed no.

However, Ronaldo released a statement on Wednesday and denied the accusation.





The national captain will miss his country’s UEFA Nations League game with Poland on October 11, before a friendly with Scotland three days later.

The Juventus forward also missed Portugal’s first two post-World Cup matches last month, with coach Fernando Santos saying Ronaldo had only just moved to the Italian club and needed time to settle in.

Santos used the 33-year-old team captain’s absence last month to try out younger players in the senior side
