Cristiano Ronaldo linked up with the Portugal squad this week and switched straight into the new Nike Floodlights Pack Mercurial Superfly V ahead of the European Champions' World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Andorra and the Faroe Islands.

CR7 made a belated switch into the Floodlights Pack from the Elite Pack sparking speculation that the Real Madrid man may be awaiting a new signature Mercurial from the Swoosh – a typical nike tactic for this time of year – but Ronaldo, for the time being, will slip into his modified version of the Superfly with lower-cut Dynamic Fit Collar for Portugal's upcoming qualifiers against minnow opposition. Chances are they'll be a scoring start for the Portugal captain in his new footwear.

Some description

As for the next CR7 exclusive design, which will be Chapter Three of his seven part story, we can expect to see that arrive on pitch in November and a quick look at the fixtures sees three Champions League games, including one against Borussia Dortmund and el clasico in early December. Now it makes sense why Nike were keen to push the signature series back a little this year.
