“The game, counting for the qualification phase of the League of Nations, is scheduled for Wednesday, at 19:45, in Alvalade.”

Portugal take on Sweden in the Nations League on Wednesday night.

Ronaldo, 35, played the full 90 minutes of Portugal’s goalless draw with France in Paris on Sunday, having also featured against Spain in Lisbon last Thursday.

Portugal boss Fernando Santos said of the draw with France: “It was a very even game; the players were too cautious. I don’t know if there was too much respect from both sides, but the game looked like that. It wasn’t very fast, but it was balanced.

Portugal go into the match top of Group C having won two of their opening fixtures and drawing the other against Les Bleus.

Sweden have lost all three of their opening matches and are rock bottom without a point.
