The World Cup is in full swing and is there a possibility that Christiano Ronaldo may not only be limited but could miss significant time as well? According to Fifa.com, Portugal is starting to fret that over the fitness of their superstar.

This is bad news for a team that is already thin on the front line. According to doctors, the Fifa Balloon d’OR winner for best football player last year, got some bad news about his recent aches and pains. Ronaldo has sustained a “muscle injury on the back of his left thigh as well as left-leg patellar tendonitis,” the Portuguese Football Association said.

The Portuguese teams has drawn group G and will be playing Germany first on June 16th in Salavador.

“We hope that Cristiano is in good enough shape to play and help the team,” teammate Nani who plays for Manchester United said. “Ronaldo is going well, and he is relaxed about it… Things are going the right way he added.”

There could be another reason for the recent misfortunes of Ronaldo if you listen to the Ghanaian “witch doctor” who claims he is the cause of all Ronaldo’s recent injuries.

According to the Guardian, Nana Kwaku Bonsam- whose name literally translates to “Devil of Wednesday”, predicted in February that the Real Madrid forward would be forced to miss the summer tournament in Brazil.

“I know what Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is about, I’m working on him. I am very serious about it. Last week, I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be used in manufacturing a special spirit called Kahwiri Kapam. I said it four months ago that I will work on Cristiano Ronaldo seriously and rule him out of the World Cup or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana and the best thing I can do is to keep him out though injury.”

Whether or not Ronaldo can make it, his teammate Nani is remaining confident,

“If for some reason (Ronaldo) is not there, whoever is there playing has to be confident in their ability to get the job done,” he said. “The World Cup is a one-of-a-kind challenge. I want to be fully fit, and in top form alongside my team-mates. I could not be there last time, but happily, I am here now,” said Nani, who this year has played 73 games and scored 14 goals with Portugal.
