Ronaldo fit to play

16 June 2014, 10:14

Salvador - Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo says that he will definitely be fit to face Germany on Monday in his country's opening World Cup encounter.

The Real Madrid player has been hampered by a knee injury and there has been persistent speculation that he will miss the crunch Group G clash.

However, the 29-year-old insists that while he is not as fit as he would like to be, there are no lingering worries about his knee.

"I have been practising for a few days, which I couldn't do if I was injured," he said.

"I'd like to be 110 percent, but I am at 100 percent and ready to help the national team.

"Obviously, I would like to play without pain, but in my entire career I have always had injuries and knocks to deal with, but I am ready to play."

"The press say whatever they want, I have been playing at a high level for years and I am used to those unhappy statements," he added.

"The media often just throw things up in the air and try to hit something.

"The most important thing is the health of the player and if there is any problem during the game, I will tell my coach.

"I am not willing to risk my career on one game, if I am not fit, I won't play."
