    Lisbon: Portugal and Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Tuesday's friendly football match against Brazil.

    "Ronaldo has had a week of intense treatment, he made an enormous sacrifice and now he needs to rest," Portugal doctor Henrique Jones said on Saturday, reports Xinhua.

    With the 28-year-old's hat-trick, Portugal recorded a 4-2 win over nine-man Northern Ireland in Group F at World Cup European Zone qualifiers, which kept them on top of the group ahead of Russia who have a game in hand.
