Portugal missed the best on the world: Santos

Football News: The 33-year-old Prolific star is not included in Portugal’s International match against Poland, and their manager missed the presence of the star man.

Santos and his man missed the Five times Ballon d’Or winner.

Last night Portugal won their UEFA Nations league match against Poland by 3-2 goals, and their head honcho dismissed the suggestion that they put in a improved performance without their prolific man.

Last night Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva were on the scoresheet for Portugal and Glik’s own goal gave them the victory over them.

Ronaldo is not included in this fixtures due to the allegation rape, which the Juventus forward strongly denied following an incident in Las Vegas in 2009.

But the Portuguese coach believes that his side is not better without the Cristiano Ronalo.

Santos stated: "No team can be better without the best in the world, it's not worth talking about who's not there,"

"When Cristiano plays, he is more advanced on the left side and gives us more ability to finish.

"When he plays we have to find a solution to get the ball to him and when he comes inside we have to have a player to cover on the left. This is how we will continue

"We started well, controlled the ball, but conceded a goal. It could have been a difficult time but the team stayed calm, controlled the rhythms.

"We scored the third goal and then there was a little issue with losing the ball in dangerous zones. We had a lot of problems.

"Portugal has only one focus, to win, the results in official matches show this.

"We do not get to be a European champion without wanting to win. A few times [we are] more defensive, others more offensive, but you have to defend well, otherwise you will not win."
