Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a minor injury in training and is now doubtful for Portugal’s visit at Serbia.

International breaks are always likely to cause some sleepless night to club managers and no doubt Fergie will be uneasy about the news of Ronaldo’s injury.

‘Cristiano sprained his heel,’ said Portugal team spokesman Onofre Costa. ‘At this time we don’t know if he will play (against Serbia).

‘It doesn’t look very serious but we are not sure if he will be fit.’

Fortunately, the only question is whether he’ll be fit for the game. That means he’ll definitely be available for the clash with Rovers on Saturday – if he does not pick up another injury.

So, I’d love if doctors ruled him out of Wednesday’s match. Serbians are unlikely to treat him gently just because he’s vital to our case and there’s a chance that he would suffer a recurrence of this minor injury that would keep him out for a long time.

By the way, can you imagine Vidic viping out Ronaldo?
