News Sports: Cristiano Ronaldo disappeared at the World Cup on Wednesday afternoon, but he didn’t care.

The Portuguese superstar sensationally left his club Manchester United in mutual consent after being handed a two-match suspension and a fine by the Football Association, with the next club replacing team-mate Bruno. Fernandes at the official FIFA press conference ahead of Thursday’s Group H game against Ghana, where he skipped the media job as captain of the national team, hours after it was revealed that he had been deported.

When does Ronaldo get ‘crazy’?

When Ronaldo speaks, it’s a big story. If not, it’s probably an even bigger problem.

“[People] usually make a lot of noise about what’s going on, but Cristiano is so famous that it happens,” Fernandez told reporters. “But the strongest group wins.”

It is not entirely unheard of for a national team captain to be absent from public pre-match appearances. In 2014, American Clint Dempsey suspended vacancies in the squad ahead of the World Cup group match against Portugal and was replaced by his colleague Jermaine Jones. But in Ronaldo’s case, his absence was inevitably linked directly to the excitement surrounding his United exit and speculation about where he might end up next.

In his absence, Ronaldo’s circus continued. Each of his first ten questions was about him. Perhaps inevitably, Santos was clearly annoyed. Santos denied the Ronaldo story was a distraction. “I don’t think so,” Santos said. “I don’t think it’s even been discussed. There was no comment on it when we were together, on the pitch, or while we were resting. The conversation has not surfaced at any point.”  “I don’t know if the players are alone in the room talking. They have time to do what they want. The most important thing for me is that the players are very focused and have a great spirit. That’s it.”
