Cristiano Ronaldo has now reacted to the injury he suffered during Portugal’s match against Czech Republic, MySportDab reports.
Ronaldo has denied claims that he could miss next weekend’s Manchester derby against Manchester City.
The Portuguese suffered a nasty face injury yesterday while on international duty with Portugal.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was left with blood pouring from his nose after a clash with Czech Republic goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik.
With 13 minutes left, Ronaldo collided with Vaclik, slamming into the United ace’s face with his arms.
It was an accident but he immediately needed medical attention.
Speaking on social media after the 4-0 victory, the 37-year-old did not mention his injury, which means it’s not bad and he is more likely to play for Portugal against Spain on Tuesday.
On Instagram, Ronaldo wrote: “Great match and an important win! We must stay focused. Thanks to the Portuguese audience for the amazing support.”
He later provided the assist for Diogo Jota to score Portugal’s fourth goal.
Fortunately for him, he was able to continue and ended the match.
Ronaldo will help fire Portugal to the Nations League finals when they host Spain next week Tuesday.
The 2016 European Championship winners need only one point from the match to secure a final spot.
However, Spain could get above them and secure the first play with a win.
