Portugal manager, Fernando Santos, insisted on Wednesday, after several questions about Cristiano Ronaldo's fitness, that "he is good and he is going to play".

In the pre-match press conference for the Portugal v Lithuania game, Santos repeated "again no, I'm not saying anything else", when he was asked for the 2nd time about the Juventus player's fitness.

Before the press conference, the manager assured through a television channel that Ronaldo was "very motivated" to play against Lithuania and Luxembourg.

"He is a fantastic professional", insisted Santos who, in turn, wondered how the figure of Cristiano Ronaldo could still be called into question.

Portugal play Lithuania on Thursday at the Estadio del Algarve de Faro (south) in the penultimate match for Euro 2020 qualification.

Due to the last-minute injury fo Porto's Pepe, the manager has called up Granada's Domingo Duarte, who could make his Portugal debut.
