Although Portugal's World Cup campaign doesn't begin until Thursday when they face Ghana in Group H, much of the buildup has focused on rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo's future with his club rather than the possibilities of his national team.
Many noted an obviously icy welcome from United colleague Bruno Fernandes at Portugal's training camp as evidence of tension in club.
Additionally, Ronaldo referred to himself as "bullet proof" and denied having a falling out with Bruno Fernandes, a teammate from Portugal and United. It was suggested that there might be after seeing a video of them traveling to the World Cup together.
Ronaldo admitted, "I was having fun. Since his flight was running late, I questioned him, "Did you travel by boat?" The changing rooms has a great atmosphere. No issues. The team is protected.
