The Real Madrid star sustained a nasty eye injury early in the Spanish champions' 2-1 win at Levante and was ruled unfit by Portugal national team doctors.

Ronaldo was caught in the face by defender David Navarro but soldiered on, even giving Madrid the lead before being substituted at half-time.

Madrid boss Jose Mourinho"He's dizzy. In the first half he was unable to see properly with that eye, but during the break he couldn't see properly with either. So it was impossible for him to continue," said .

"When he gets to Madrid he'll go to hospital to have the tests he needs."

Valencia defender Joao Pereira and Dynamo Kiev midfielder Miguel Veloso have also pulled out of the clash in Libreville.

Portugal coach Paulo Bento has called up Maritimo's Ruben Ferreira and Hugo Viana of Braga as replacements.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
