Ronaldo Fears Grow For Portugal

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, will miss his country’s World Cup build-up match against Mexico as fears grow he could miss at least parts of the World Cup.

Ronaldo continues his recovery from tendinosis in his left knee, as well as a tigh injury, and will remain in Portugal’s training camp in New York while his teammates travelled to Boston.

He is yet to take part in a full training session with his teammates since joining the Portugal camp last Friday.

Without Ronaldo, a toothless Portugal was only able to achieve a goalless draw against Greece last Saturday.

The 29-year-old struggled with minor injuries, caused from muscle fatigue, during the closing stages of Real Madrid’s season, but played 120 minutes in the Champions League final.

Raul Meireles (thigh) and Pepe (muscular injury) will also remain in New York for recovery training as confirmed by the Portuguese FA.

“They will maintain the programme pre-established by the medical department for their injuries, with specific work in the hotel and some sporting interludes on the pitch,” reads the official statement.

Portugal’s last game before the World Cup comes on Tuesday against the Republic of Ireland and they open their tournament against Germany on June 16.
