Perez calls for common sense

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is confident that the Portuguese Football Federation will not take any chances with the fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo for the World Cup play-offs. Ronaldo has reported for duty with his country for their crucial showdown with Bosnia-Herzegovina, but Perez doesn't expect him to feature due to an ankle injury. He told Marca: "We sent our reports to the FPF, who asked to see the player and perform the tests there. It seems appropriate to us because good sense must be applied to the topic. "The player isn't in a fit state to play and they will see that - what's more, Cristiano feels that way. "Everyone's common sense will make the FPF see what is a reality. We have no proof that they will do the opposite and want him to play. "I sincerely believe that the FPF's medical staff will realise his situation and that there will not be a problem."
