The Portuguese Football Federation released a statement on its official website on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021. It explained that Ronaldo has been excused from the camp from the suspension from the nation's next game against Azerbaijan.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been excused from the stage of the national team this Thursday. The yellow card seen against Ireland, being the second in this stage of qualification, forces him to fulfil an official game of suspension, which will happen against Azerbaijan.

The release from the national team means Ronaldo will miss the friendly game against Qatar in Hungary. This means he might resume Manchester United camp earlier ahead of the next round of games.
