Cristiano Ronaldo Sprains His Shoulder, Doubtful To Join Portugal

The Portuguese star played most of the second half of El Clásico after he tried to acrobatically strike a corner-kick from Mesut Özil. He will undergo tests Monday to see if he's ready to go with Portugal's National Team.

Cristiano Ronaldo is really tough. But he might finally miss some games after he fell over his own shoulder in what could've been a Puyol-like injury. He kept playing and scored Real Madrid's second goal going through a lot of pain, as everyone could notice.

It would be one smart move if he decided to sit out from Portugal's next matches in these next two weeks. But, as we know, he might still want to commit to his National Team. He will undergo some tests today to see how bad his injury really is.
