Report: Cristiano Ronaldo fit to play in World Cup opener
Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly healthy enough to play against Germany in the team's World Cup opener on June 16.
Cristiano Ronaldo is healthy (enough) and expected to start against Germany on Monday when Portugal opens its World Cup campaign, according to a report from ESPN.
Ronaldo had been battling leg injuries that had kept him out of practice in recent weeks, offering speculation that he might not be able to compete against Group G foes Germany, Ghana and the U.S.
After playing all 120 minutes in Real Madrid’s Champions League final last month, Ronaldo had been plagued by patellar tendonitis in his left knee and a thigh injury.
All systems are apparently go as Ronaldo was spotted tossing a football and leaping during yesterday’s practice at the New York Jets’ practice facility.
Yeah, the knee looks OK.
