Ronaldo looks fine, says team-mate

10:05 am on 20 June 2014

Portugal football star Cristiano Ronaldo is showing no signs of any trouble with his left knee and is jumping and shooting as usual, team-mate Miguel Veloso says.

Veloso says Ronaldo is training, jumping and shooting.

Ronaldo, who was suffering from tendinosis in his left knee before the World Cup, ended a training session early on Thursday and was photographed walking off the field with an ice pack on his left knee.

However, Portuguese media say it was just a precaution.

Portugal, thrashed 4-0 by Germany in their opening match on Tuesday, must beat the United States in Manaus on Monday to have any realistic chance of staying in the competition.
