Ronaldo Could Play Final Friendly

Portugal star, Cristiano Ronaldo, is set to return to the Portugal side for Tuesday’s final World Cup build-up match against the Republic of Ireland.

The 29-year-old has missed Portugal’s previous two warm-up matches through injury, but has returned to practice on Sunday.

Portugal drew Greece 0-0 and beat Mexico 1-0, but looked toothless without their captain and all-time record scorer, whose return will give the side a major boost.

“Everybody knows the importance of Ronaldo to our team and his importance to the group, both on and off the pitch,” Ronaldo teammate, Vierinha, told reporters.

Ronaldo was joined by Raul Mereiles, who also returned from injury on Sunday. Now, the only injury concern seems to be Real Madrid defender, Pepe, who still practices individually.

Portugal have been drawn in Group G and will open their World Cup campaign against Germany on 16 June.
