Ronaldo misses training ahead of Andorra clash
Ronaldo did not train with Portugal on Wednesday.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo did not join in training with the rest of the Portugal squad on Wedensday, leading to concerns over his fitness.

The forward was conspicuous by his absence at training with his national team on Wednesday, instead taking in a session with Portugal’s physio, though the issue is not thought to be serious.

The news is thought to have sent panic through the corridors at the Bernabeu, with Real at that point believing that Gareth Bale was also set for a long spell on the sidelines.

However, Bale has since been cleared of a muscle tear and according to Spanish publication ‘AS’, Ronaldo’s problem isn’t serious and his no-show at training was merely a precaution.

Portugal make the trip to Andorra on Saturday, but all the attention is on Tuesday’s game against Switzerland, which is likely to decide which side qualifies for next summer’s World Cup automatically and which must face a play-off.
