Portugal and Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was back in training in Braga on Monday after sustaining a nasty-looking face injury over the weekend.
The 37-year-old was given a bloody nose after colliding with Czech goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik during the Nations League match on Saturday.
“We had a two-day break, then played 90 minutes, and yesterday they didn’t even train. It was just recovery training. Today we trained for 45 minutes, some physical work,” – Portugal Head Coach Fernando Santos said during the team training at a press conference.
With his face marked with a black eye and cuts, Ronaldo took part in a light training session despite his injury. The striker is expected to lead the line in his nation’s last match before the World Cup against Spain on Tuesday.
