Cristiano Ronaldo and Renato Sanches return for Portugal as coach Fernando Santos demands an end to the Euro 2016 party
Cristiano Ronaldo and Renato Sanches were recalled to the Portugal squad after injury on Thursday as coach Fernando Santos urged the European champions to switch out of party mode.
Santos, naming his players for next month's World Cup qualifiers at home to Andorra and away to the Faroe Islands, believes his players were not fully switched on when they began their campaign with a 2-0 defeat in Switzerland.
'We have to get out of European champion mode, that party mode, that state of relaxation,' Santos told reporters. 'That cannot happen again.'
