“It’s not about physical problems, it’s a question of management,” said Santos during a press conference in Lisbon.

“It wouldn’t make sense to travel to Switzerland with 26 players, when we can only have 23 on the bench,” he added without further details. 

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, did not take part in the final training session before the squad took off for Geneva.
