    Portuguese football star forward Cristiano Ronaldo posted on his Instagram a response after news broke that he will miss a third game with his Juventus club in the Italian championship.

    Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri earlier excluded the 34-year-old striker from the team's roster for the upcoming match against Atlanta in Group A of the nation's tournament.

    Ronaldo broke the silence on Friday, commenting on the situation around the much-anticipated match.

    "Focused on my recovery to come back soon", Ronaldo said, without providing further details. The comment is accompanied by a picture of him in apparently a training suit, modified with a grey filter.
