Who’s Back: Cristiano Ronaldo Returns To World Cup Training With Portugal

BY: Eyalama In Sports On

The Real Madrid superstar had been given a short break following last weekend’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool.

Ronaldo arrived back in his homeland on Sunday and joined in training at Portugal’s Cruz Quebrada-Dafundo base in Lisbon.

He appeared in high spirits as the European champions stepped up their preparations for this summer’s tournament in Russia and stopped to sign autographs for fans after the session.

Portugal face Algeria in a warm-up clash on June 7 before opening their World Cup campaign against Spain later this month.

Following last week’s win over Liverpool, Ronaldo fuelled speculation over his Real Madrid future.

The Los Blancos star insisted he would discuss his future after the win in Kiev – although he is yet to make any statement.

Zinedine Zidane’s depature, which was confirmed on Friday, is likely to have implications on Ronaldo’s decision.
