Ronaldo Forced Off With Injury During Portugal’s Euro 2020 Qualifier

Cristiano Ronaldo

Dusan Tadic fired Serbia ahead with a seventh-minute penalty before Ronaldo was replaced by Pizzi on the half-hour and centre back Danilo equalised for the European champions with a spectacular long-range effort in the 42nd.

Recovery time for a thigh injury varies from up to 10 days for a slight problem to three months, but Ronaldo quickly moved to reassure everyone that he would soon shake off the knock.

Cristiano Ronaldo has gone off injured during Portugal's European Championship qualifier against Serbia.

During a sprint, Ronaldo seemed to pull a muscle in his leg and stopped chasing the ball immediately after feeling the discomfort. "I am fine because I know I will come back in one, two weeks", Ronaldo said of the injury after Monday's match.

Auburn Hangs on to Beat New Mexico State After Crazy Finish
Their reward is a round-of-64 fixture opposite Auburn-ranked fifth in the Midwest Region-on Thursday in Salt Lake City . Jordan Ford and Malik Fitts each had 13 points for Saint Mary's, which finished the season 22-12.

"I would have liked to have been at [Portugal's] other games".

"I'm not anxious, I know my body", Ronaldo told Portuguese media.

Some desperate defending by Serbia kept Portugal at bay in the dying minutes and Raphael Guerreiro missed the home side's final chance in stoppage time when he hit the side netting with a fierce shot from inside the penalty area. Coach Krstajic is doing good job with Serbian team and had pretty good World Cup in Russian Federation previous year but not everything is great because some good players have turned down the call to join Serbian national team as long as he is the coach. In that game against Germany, Serbia was being outplayed throughout entire game by having only 34% ball possession and only 1 shot on goal but their defense was just impressive.

The Serie A side are eyeing Champions League glory after Ronaldo's hat-trick put them through to the Champions League quarter-finals, overturning a 2-0 deficit against Atletico Madrid in the first leg.
