Cristiano Ronaldo will lead Portugal into his 11th major international tournament after being named in Roberto Martinez’s 26-man squad for Euro 2024.

Ronaldo opted against retiring from international football after Portugal suffered a surprise exit at the hands of Morocco at the 2022 World Cup, remaining an integral part of the Selecao setup under Martinez.

His 14 European Championship goals are an all-time tournament record, putting him five clear of Michel Platini, and he will look to widen that gap in Germany this year.

Portugal, who won all 10 of their qualifiers while scoring 36 goals, will open their Group F campaign against the Czech Republic before facing Turkey and Georgia.

There are few surprises in Martinez’s squad overall, with Manchester City’s Matheus Nunes and fellow midfielder Renato Sanches among the most notable absentees.
