Cristiano Ronaldo gets a good sniff at Renato Sanches’ hair during training with Portugal’s national team ahead of their UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifiers.
The International break has arrived and the national teams have assembled ahead of their upcoming assignments. The Portugal team are preparing for their Group B Euro 2020 qualifier matches against Serbia and Lithuania.
Cristiano Ronaldo led his team to UEFA Nations league trophy earlier in the year and will hope to take his side to the Euro’s where they will defend the championship they won back in 2016. The team will definitely take the challenge very seriously. However, this does not mean that there is no room for humorous silliness between teammates.
Cristiano Ronaldo gets a good sniff at Renato Sanches’ hair during training
Portugal Captain Cristiano Ronaldo was seen smelling Renato Sanches’ hair during training with Portugal today. He casually approached the youngster before grabbing his hair and getting a nose full of it. Sanches’ walks away like nothing happened while Ronaldo smiles.

This is not the first time the Portuguess ace has taken a whiff of Sanches’ locks. He’s done the same back in 2016 as well.
He probably loves the smell of Sanches’ shampoo.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Renato Sanches were key architects in Portugal’s conquest of the Euro’s back in 2016. Ronaldo won the Silver boot for his 3 goals and 3 assists. Sanches was awarded the young player of the tournament award for his phenomenal showing. He was named above Kingsley Coman and Portugal teammate Raphaël Guerreiro and even earned him a move to Bayern Munich.
The move however, did not yield the expected results as he would have desired and he’s now been shifted out to Lille. The youngster has a chance to bring he’s career back on track through another phenomenal showing at Europe’s showpiece event.
This is probably Ronaldo’s swansong Euro championship and the team will hope to send him off with a successful defence of their title.
