StoryCristiano Ronaldo certain to play against Germany, says Eduardo

Portugal skipper and talismanic winger Cristiano Ronaldo is almost one hundred percent certain to play for the team in their opening group match against Germany, according t goalkeeper Eduardo.

The Real Madrid man has been suffering from lingering knee problems for the last couple of weeks but his team mate has confidently claimed that their talisman will be available for the match.

The former Manchester United winger took part in a full training session in front of the glaring eyes of the world media but he was extremely careful about not putting too much pressure on his strapped left knee as the squad went through their drills.

The entire media has trained its eye on how the FIFA World Player of the Year recovers from recent knee and thigh problems, in spite of playing for 65 minutes against the Republic of Ireland in a recent friendly win where he was arguably the team’s best player.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a player whose form and fitness will prove pivotal if the team is to progress further into the competition gave his team mates and the coaching quite a scare when he limped off training with his knee heavily strapped but he returned for light training the very next day.

Eduardo echoed the comments that were made by team mate William Carvalho a day before in a press conference. According to the Portuguese number one, Cristiano Ronaldo is training well and very hard and the team is entirely certain that he will be fully fit to take the field against Germany and help the team have an excellent game against the pre-World Cup favorites.

Portugal have been drawn against Ghana, Germany and the United States of America in Group G of the World Cup and Ronaldo will need to be fully fit for the team to progress.
