Cristiano Ronaldo is not among the players selected by Fernando Santos for Portugal's upcoming global fixtures against Poland and Scotland.

The 33-year-old, who captains his nation and has made 154 appearances, is now embroiled in a sexual assault scandal dating back to an incident in Las Vegas in 2009 - though he denies any wrongdoing.

It was not indicated whether the decision was linked to the current allegations against the player.

"In the future, nothing prevents Cristiano from giving his input to the selection", Santos said during a press conference, according to A Selecao's official Twitter account.

Back then, the Portugal coach said Ronaldo needed time to settle in at his new club in Italy, but it is unclear whether or not that is again the reason for his most recent snub.

Police in Las Vegas have confirmed they have reopened an investigation into the case. He has denied the accusation. "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".

Ronaldo was left off the squad for Portugal's second game in the UEFA Nations League at Poland on October 11 and a friendly match in Glasgow against Scotland three days later.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United player was rested for Portugal's internationals in September.
