Cristiano Ronaldo injured in Portugal's draw with Serbia

May JohnsonMar 27, 2019

"I'm not anxious because I know my body perfectly", he told reporters on Monday. "I am fine because I know I will come back in one or two weeks", Ronaldo said of the injury after Monday's 1-1 draw.

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.

The reigning European champions failed to recapture the same intensity after the restart and were fortunate that Adem Ljajic blazed over in the 56th minute, while Nemanja Maksimovic made a vital block to deny Andre Silva at the other end. The referee appeared to signal the penalty but backtracked after talking with the linesman.

In a season, Ronaldo has never missed more than three weeks across his career at Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus.

"He invited me into his room to take a look at the incident".

Britain on Monday said it was giving six million pounds ($8 million, seven million euros) in emergency aid to Mozambique. The road between Beira and Chimoio has been damaged, leaving aid agencies cut off, unable to deliver supplies.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said Polish referee Szymon Marciniak also apologized to him after the match. "You can't let someone who is 40 metres away make the call for you".

The contest finished 1-1, leaving Portugal third in Group B. Serbia, with a game in hand, has one point.

Despite Portugal's inability to win their to opening matches in the Euro 2020 qualifying matches, against Ukraine and now Serbia, Ronaldo is upbeat with Selecao chances.

Though it remains to be seen how serious his injury is, in being forced off the pitch Ronaldo joins rival Lionel Messi on the sidelines, after the Barcelona wizard suffered a pelvic injury during Argentina's defeat to Venezuela.

Just like in the scoreless draw against Ukraine, Portugal created numerous scoring opportunities but failed to capitalize.
