Unfortunately, Cristiano Ronaldo’s knee injury has only gotten worse. Doctors told him to sit out the game on June 16 after he hurt his knee three days prior, but he didn’t listen! Will he be able to play in the remainder of the World Cup?
Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, 29, came limping off the Portugal practice field on June 13 due to a knee injury, resulting in doctors ordering him for some time off. Instead, he played in practice with “left patellar tendonitis.” Now, many are left wondering if the injury is more serious than he’s letting on, and that he should have iced it in order to keep playing.
Cristiano Ronaldo Injured & Might Not Return To World Cup
After injuring his knee during practice on June 13, the soccer star decided to play in the Portugal V. Spain game on Monday, June 16 — after being told to sit that game out so his knee does’t get worse.
During practice on Wednesday, June 18, Cristiano reportedly had to stop practicing because his knee pains were too severe. Instead, he sat on the sideline and iced. Cristiano has dealt with leg injuries in the past and recovered from them, but it would be so disappointing to not see him play in the rest of the World Cup!
