Injury concerns for Portugal star Ronaldo

Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo is being closely monitored by national team staff after he cut short a training session on Thursday due to picking up a slight injury, reports the Guardian.

The Real Madrid star has struggled to find full fitness ahead of the World Cup, and only returned to action in Wednesday’s 5-1 friendly win over the Republic of Ireland. He had previously been out of action for two weeks due to a thigh problem as well as tendonitis in his left knee.

Ronaldo’s early exit from training suggested that he was still being troubled by the tendonitis, as he left the session with an ice pack around his knee, and Portugal will be concerned over his readiness to play in their opening game, which is against fancied Germany on Monday afternoon.

Despite that, teammate Joao Moutinho insists there is nothing to worry about. He said: “Ever since he started to train with us he has been 100% like the rest of us. Everything is fine with him but there is some caution, not only with him. Today many other players were using ice as well. There is nothing to worry about. The ice is normal after training.”
