Portuguese soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo recently took to social media to send a shoutout to his "family" as he reunited with his national team on the field for a practice session ahead of their clash with Slovenia.

In a heartfelt shoutout to the Portugal soccer team on Facebook, Ronaldo shared photos of himself practising on the field with his teammates, captioning it: "The family".

He added a Portuguese flag emoji and the hashtag: "#ShareThePassion".

The 39-year-old five-time Ballon d'Or winner's post follows recent rumours about him getting dropped from the national team as he was not listed to play alongside his national team for their friendly clash against Sweden on Friday (March 22)

The rumours worried fans but were soon put to rest after the team clarified that the reason for the Al-Nassr striker being dropped was purely to give him some rest.

The Portugal captain recently enjoyed a small vacation with his family in Saudi Arabia after the Saudi Pro League was paused for the international break.

The former Real Madrid star will continue his training ahead of the clash with Slovenia this week.

He hopes to compete in the European Championship in Germany this summer, where Portugal will face the Czech Republic, Turkey and a play-off winner in the group stages.
