Tue 08 September 2020 | 17:58

After missing the win over Croatia with an infected toe, Cristiano Ronaldo was back in Portugal's starting line-up to face Sweden.

Cristiano Ronaldo was restored to Portugal's starting line-up against Sweden and will be hoping to score his 100th goal for the country in the Nations League clash.

Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo missed the impressive 4-1 victory over Croatia on Saturday due to an infected toe.

However, the Portugal captain was deemed fit to return on Tuesday and head coach Fernando Santos selected him in place of Diogo Jota in his only change.

Ronaldo has scored in each of his past six appearances for Portugal - accumulating 11 goals in total - and will bring up his century with his next international strike.
