Ronaldo - arguably the best player in the world - was left off the roster for an October 11 match against Poland and an October 14 game against Scotland.

He will also miss a friendly match in Glasgow against Scotland three days later.

On Tuesday, the Juventus player denied the allegations against him by Kathryn Mayorga, who claims Ronaldo sexually assaulted her in Las Vegas in 2009.

However, Ronaldo told Santos and Gomes that he is still fully committed to representing and captaining Portugal going forward, and has no intention of retiring from the national team any time soon.

He wrote: 'I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor missed the two internationals Portugal played in September.

'Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.

City responded quickly, with David Silva's defence splitting pass allowing Leroy Sane to lay on the assist for Sergio Aguero . Phil Foden is likely to be on the bench and have a taste of the action when we are 4-0 up with 30 minutes left to play.

"My clear conscious [sic] will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations".

"For the next two squad selections, this one and the one next month, Ronaldo won't be with us".

Mayorga says the alleged assault left her with post-traumatic stress, and she wants an eight-year-old legal settlement of her charges thrown out because she says the psychological injuries made her incompetent to agree to it at the time.

The 33-year-old five-times world player of the year said he needed more time to adapt following his move from Real Madrid to Juventus, coach Fernando Santos said at the time.

"She has suffered an emotional, a psychological injury", Stovall said.

A woman who has accused football star Cristiano Ronaldo of raping her gained courage from the #MeToo movement to file a complaint, her lawyer has said.
