During Saturday’s 4-0 win, Ronaldo could be seen with blood streaming down his face.

He did, however, manage to play the full 90 minutes and was able to train with the rest of his teammates, despite the signs of the clash.

Vaclik’s arms ended up crashing into Ronaldo’s face, as the Olympiacos goalkeeper went to collect the ball.

After being treated by Portuguese medical staff, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner would later award a penalty.

Czech striker Patrik Schick came forward to take the kick only for him to miss.

Portugal managed to win the match with Diogo Dalot scoring a brace, either side of a strike from Bruno Fernandes.

The 37-year-old is expected to play against Spain on Monday

Liverpool striker Diogo Jota added a late fourth to complete the 4-0 win.

Ronaldo, despite his knock, is likely to spearhead Portugal’s attack when his side face Spain in the Iberian derby in Braga on Tuesday.

The Nations League match will decide Group B and will be the last before the World Cup in Qatar.

Portugal must avoid defeat in their last group game against Spain to reach the semi-finals of the Nations League.
