Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo suffered an injury scare on Monday as he prepared for the European Championship.

Ronaldo, whose Portugal team play Turkey in the second game of Euro 2008 on Saturday night, left Monday’s training session in Neuchatel with a large ice pack strapped to his right ankle.

The 23-year-old, a controversial transfer target for Real Madrid, was a peripheral figure in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Georgia, Portugal’s final warm-up a game before the finals, and was replaced in the second half.

Although he didn’t appear to be in serious discomfort on Monday, Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari will hope his main man is fit and raring to go on Saturday night.
