On deadline day, the Portuguese superstar rejoined Manchester United, but had to quickly return to international duty, scoring two late goals in a 2-1 triumph over the Republic of Ireland. Ronaldo was given a yellow card for taking his shirt off during one of his goal celebrations, and as a result, he will miss the next World Cup qualifier. As a result, Portugal's manager has chosen to enable his star player to join up with his new teammates ahead of schedule.
After receiving a yellow card for celebrating a score against Ireland, head coach Fernando Santos has permitted the megastar to depart the Portugal training camp six days early. Ronaldo now holds the world record for international goals scored.
The forward will have to isolate himself for five days before rejoining his United teammates on Wednesday. With the Red Devils' next encounter against Newcastle United coming up on Saturday, the Portuguese star will only have two days of training before his first match. The following game, against Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday 14th, might be Ronaldo's full debut if the Newcastle match comes too soon.
