CAIRO - 15 March 2019: Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo was recalled by the Portuguese national squad for the first time since last year's World Cup on Friday.

Ronaldo, who was not included in the squad for the Nations League matches against Poland and Italy between September and November, was among the players named by coach Fernando Santos for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Ukraine and Serbia.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos' side face a Euro 2020 Group B qualifier against Ukraine on March 22 before they play Serbia three days later, with both matches being played at Lisbon's Estadio da Luz.

Ronaldo moved Juventus last summer from Real Madrid in a €100m transfer and has scored 24 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions, including a hat trick in Wednesday's 3-0 home triumph over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The result gave the Italian giants a 3-2 win on aggregate and clinched their place in the quarterfinals, where they will face Ajax.
