Ronaldo played for Juventus in Serie A on Saturday but missed the midweek Champions League fixture against Young Boys after being sent off in the previous fixture against Valencia.

Kathryn Mayorga, the woman accusing soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo of sexual assault, filed a civil lawsuit against the Portugal star to pursue justice, according to her attorney.

Ronaldo's club Juventus, which signed him in a $92 million transfer over the summer, threw its support behind him in a social media post on Thursday without mentioning any specifics of the allegations.

"We agreed the player wouldn't be available, wouldn't be an option for selection", Mr Santos said.

In the U.S., Nike took the rare step of expressing concern about one of its own athletes.

Santos said he expected Ronaldo to play again for Portugal eventually.

Ronaldo, 33, is dealing with rape accusations from Kathryn Mayorga, and has firmly denied her story while calling rape "abominable".

News of Ronaldo's omission from the Portuguese set-up comes in a week where the former Real Madrid man has stressed his determination to fight an allegation of rape that has been made against him.

"I believe what he said. because I've known Ronaldo for many years and I can attest to his good character", Gomes said.

The documents claim Ronaldo confirmed the pair had sex, but said it was consensual, the paper reported.

Ronaldo's denial came as lawyers for his accuser said they had obtained damning correspondence between the footballer and his legal team. The article ran Friday.

"While screaming "no, no, no" she was sodomized by Cristiano Ronaldo", the document reads. The story came back to light after German magazine Der Spiegel published an interview with Mayorga on September 29.

EA Sports spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on the matter, saying, "We have seen the concerning report that details allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo".

Her lawyers added they were considering whether to release documents they say relate to the case, including police reports, medical records and an out-of-court settlement that apparently included a non-disclosure agreement about the incident.
