Early estimates suggest that the forward will be out for at least one month after the ligament sprain to his left knee following the challenge by Dmitri Payet. The player is still to undergo more comprehensive tests which will give a better understanding of the time he will be need to recover although this type of injury can often mean six to eight weeks, however, Zidane will not take any risks with a player he still expects much of next season.

Due to Portugal's extended run in the Euros, Cristiano now has 19 days holiday before joining up with the rest of the squad for pre-season training and friendly matches. He is expected to be in New York on the 31 July.
