Thiago Silva disappointed with Cristiano Ronaldo absence

Reuters

Brazil defender Thiago Silva has admitted he is disappointed that Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out of Tuesday’s friendly.

The Seleção, fresh from their 6-0 rout of Australia on Saturday, will now travel to the Gillette Stadium, Boston, to face Luiz Felipe Scolari’s former side.

But Ronaldo, who scored a devastating hat-trick in a 4-2 win over Northern Ireland on Friday, has been ruled out due to tendinitis, and Silva had been looking forward to facing the Real Madrid man.

"Portugal are a very strong team, they've been playing tough international challenges for some time now. I watched the goals yesterday, the three from Cristiano," Silva told reporters.

"Someone said he's not playing, that he felt something, but who knows? It could be one of those little lies. But regardless of that, their team is really strong. We need to be ready to face them.

"I'm not happy that he [Cristiano] is out. It's always a sad thing to see a fellow footballer getting injured. We had that today with Marcelo. A player of Cristiano's calibre should always be fit to play, because that makes any match automatically better."

However, David Luiz, who partnered Silva at the back against the Socceroos, feels Ronaldo's absence gives Brazil a better chance of winning.

He told reporters: "When one of the best players in the world isn't fit to play, it's always better for who's playing against his team."
