Ronaldo limited in Portugal camp by foot infection

Portugal preparing to face Croatia

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a second training session in a row with the Portugal squad on Thursday due to a foot problem ahead of Nations League matches against Croatia and Sweden.

Ronaldo has 99 goals in 164 global matches but the FPF, which has closed its training camp to the press citing health protocols, gave no indication whether he will be fit for either game.

"I am very doubtful that by tomorrow (Saturday) he will be 100 percent OK", Santos told a press conference.

Although not how Ronaldo would have envisaged becoming just the second player to ever reach a century of worldwide goals, the price of 10/11 (1.91) on him doing exactly that in Porto offers superb value for punters in this Nations League clash.

"Now we have to wait".

However, officers did arrest Marcyelle Smith, 19, and Deonte Brown, 18, on charges of carrying a firearm without a license. The police claim that one of the occupants displayed a weapon, prompting the officers to fire their weapons.

So far, according to information provided by the Portuguese Football Federation, coach Fernando Santos has had all 25 players of the squad available for training and there are no injuries reported in the lead up to the game.

Ronaldo has not played since early August when Juventus was knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon.

Ronaldo, Portugal's all-time leading scorer and most capped player, has been stuck on 99 goals for 10 months since scoring in the 2-0 win away to Luxembourg in its last worldwide. Because Euro 2020 has been postponed a year, the country also remains European champion.

Aside from Ronaldo both Portugal and Croatia will be without other star players.

Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic have both withdrawn from Zlatko Dalic's squad, leaving Croatia with just five midfielders.
