Cristiano Ronaldo has gone off injured during Portugal’s European Championship qualifier against Serbia.

Ronaldo pulled up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury when sprinting after the ball and was substituted shortly afterwards.

Serbia were winning the game 1-0 at the time through Dusan Tadic’s penalty.

Ronaldo’s club, Juventus, are 15 points clear at the top of Italy’s Serie A and face Ajax in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The first leg takes place in Amsterdam on 10 April, with the return leg in Turin on 16 April.

The 34-year-old was playing for his country for only the second time since last summer’s 2018 World Cup.
