Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has total confidence in his fitness after playing in Portugal's final World Cup tune-up game. It was Ronaldo's first appearance since the Champions League final as he helped Portugal thrash the Republic of Ireland 5-1 in New Jersey.

The Ballon d'Or winner has been carrying a knee injury for much of the second-half of this season, but at the final whistle briefly remarked: "I'm at 99.9%."

Portugal do not open their World Cup campaign until the 16th of June against Germany.
