Portugal head coach Fernando Santos insists his team will not alter how they play in forward areas to find Cristiano Ronaldo more frequently as the Juventus star aims to become the greatest goalscorer in international football history.
Ronaldo is currently on 102 international goals for Portugal, second on the all-time list of scorers for their respective countries, with Ali Daei of Iran currently top with 109 goals.
It is likely that CR7 will surpass the record at some point as he still captains the national side and features in every game for club and country if he is fit.

"No, certainly not, nobody will be thinking about Cristiano," Santos said when asked if Portugal will go out of their way to help Ronaldo.
"They [other players] will not be thinking about not scoring in order to give the chance to someone else. Even Cristiano wouldn't want that to happen. Cristiano will score when he has to score. They [other players] will not be thinking about that."
Even at the age of 35, Ronaldo remains a goalscoring machine.
He'll have the opportunity to get closer to Daei this midweek when Portugal take on Croatia in the Nations League.
