CRISTIANO RONALDO has NO plans to retire from international football, according to reports.
And the ex-Manchester United man is already plotting Portugal’s path to glory at Euro 2024.

Ronnie, 37, finds himself without a club following last month’s Old Trafford exit.
His World Cup journey is also over after Portugal were dumped out in the quarter-finals by plucky Morocco.
And there are plenty of questions over Ronaldo’s next moves.
The veteran is waiting on offers from Champions League clubs after receiving a record £173million-a-year contract from Al-Nassr.
But reports in Ronaldo’s homeland claim his international future is a lot more certain.
CM Journal claims Ronaldo has already informed Portugal chiefs he intends to continue playing for his country.
The future of boss Fernando Santos may be in doubt.
But Ronnie apparently sees himself leading his countrymen out at Euro 2024.
The striker is still reeling after being axed from Portugal’s final two World Cup matches.
And he is determined to reclaim his spot after becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in internationals.
Ronaldo’s route back to the side could be aided by Portugal’s stunning reported swoop for Jose Mourinho.
It’s claimed in Italy that the Roma boss has been offered the national team job while remaining in charge of his Serie A side.
Mourinho and Ronaldo enjoyed a close relationship together at Real Madrid, and the duo could end up leading Portugal’s Euro 2024 charge together.
