Rumors about Ronaldo's condition have been swirling on the Internet, and officials were forced to deny reports that his personal doctor had advised him to quit the tournament.A few days' rest seems to have helped, and his teammate Miguel Veloso said the player appeared to be in good shape. Ronaldo, who was suffering from tendinosis in his left knee several weeks before the 32-nation tournament, was photographed walking out of Wednesday's training session early with an ice pack on his left knee.Goalkeeper Rui Patricio and striker Hugo Almeida were also nursing knocks but have been ruled fit to play, although the latter could be rested.Klinsmann might ponder whether to start John Brooks, who scored the winner against the Ghanaians on his World Cup debut after coming on as a substitute for Matt Besler, while striker Aron Johansson is set to replace the injured Jozy Altidore.
