Cristiano Ronaldo forced off with injury during Euro 2020 qualifier


Juventus have issued a statement describing the injury Cristiano Ronaldo suffered during Portugal's 1-1 draw with Serbia in Lisbon as an "apparent minor thigh" problem. He was playing in an global for only the second time since last summer's World Cup.

Juventus will go toe-to-toe with the Eredivisie side on April 10 in the first leg of that semi-final clash in Amsterdam before returning to Turin for the second leg six days later.

"I'm not anxious about this, I know my body", Ronaldo told reporters, after remaining on the bench and urging his teammates from the touchline despite his injury. It happens, it's football.

Ronaldo was instrumental in guiding Juventus past Atletico Madrid and into the Champions League quarter-finals, as the former Real Madrid star fired home a hat-trick to help the Italian side overcome a 2-0 first leg deficit. It has been eight months because I needed time for myself.

Serbia opened the scoring with a penalty kick converted by Dusan Tadic in the seventh minute, and Danilo Pereira equalized for the hosts with a powerful long-range shot before halftime.

Portugal and Serbia will meet once again in Serbia when the qualifiers continue in September.

"We created more opportunities to score, did everything to win, couldn't make it".

He said: "Honestly, I think the team played well". Fortunately, Ronaldo had the entire summer to recuperate and missed just the opening two La Liga matches of the 2016/17 season, marking his subsequent return in the third game of the campaign typically with a goal, against Osasuna.
