Eye injury keeps Ronaldo out of Portugal game

LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Portugal's friendly in Gabon on Wednesday after sustaining a gash over his left eye in a Real Madrid game.

Ronaldo missed the second half of his club's match against Levante after defender David Navarro's elbow cut the Portugal captain. Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said his star forward temporarily lost his sight.

The Portuguese Football Federation said in a statement Ronaldo would miss the trip to Libreville, though it gave no details.

Defender Joao Pereira and midfielder Miguel Veloso are also out for medical reasons, the federation said without elaborating.

Coach Paulo Bento called up Hugo Viana and Ruben Ferreira.
