Juventus defender Joao Cancelo: Ronaldo happy Portugal winning without him

Juventus defender Joao Cancelo is confident Cristiano Ronaldo will be happy with Portugal's win against Italy.

Ronaldo missed the game.

But Cancelo said: "He will certainly be happy, because we have shown that even without him we are doing well, but he remains very important to us, and when he comes back we will be even stronger.

"In November, at San Siro against the Azzurri we will play for the group victory. For us it would also mean hosting the final phase of the Nations League in June: an opportunity to grow again."
