Cristiano Ronaldo has been released from the Portuguese national team camp, as he travels to Manchester to join his new teammates at Manchester United. This decision to leave camp early with Portugal having two more games to play was because the Portugal team captain was suspended for their fifth match in the qualifiers against Azerbaijan, as he was shown the yellow card after he pulled off his shirt, as he scored the winner against the Republic of Ireland.
