Star striker Cristiano Ronaldo will join the Real Madrid roster for the upcoming International Champions Cup in the United States, the club announced Thursday.
Ronaldo injured his left knee during the World Cup and was not listed on the 20-man roster released last week. He is the reigning Ballon d'Or winner as the world's best player.
The ICC is a friendly tournament that will be contested in stadiums throughout the US.
Real Madrid will face Inter Milan on July 26 at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley. Their next match is against A.S. Roma at the Cotton Bowl on July 29. Real Madrid will face Manchester United at Michigan Stadium on August 2. Tickets for the match at the 109,900-seat stadium are already sold out.
The tournament final will be held at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida.
