Portugal coach Fernando Santos insisted he had no need to call Cristiano Ronaldo, instead opting to let his star enjoy a deserved break before the World Cup.
Santos said he had no plans to make contact with the 33-year-old superstar, hoping the forward returns in good condition.
"Cristiano Ronaldo is on holiday," he said.
"I won't bother Cristiano by calling him, after a spell where he's put in so much effort and is tired. I don't have to talk with Cristiano.
"Hopefully he can have a great holiday and he can come back in good condition. That's the important thing."
