Cristiano Ronaldo means "nothing is impossible" for Portugal, says José Mourinho

Ronaldo hobbled out of the 2-2 draw at Barcelona after scoring Real Madrid's first equaliser, adding to Zidane's injury concerns, with Dani Carvajal and Isco also struggling for fitness.

He said in quotes reported on realmadrid.com: "It's a great team".

That Champions League final match-up pits Cristiano Ronaldo and Salah against one another, with both players set to be contenders for the Ballon d'Or in the winter.

"Isco will train with us normally and Carvajal has a little way to go, but physically he is working well".

"What is incredible is that (Ronaldo) is walking after 48 hours and that shows his ambition, but I'm not sure if he will be available for the Villarreal game", Zidane told reporters on Tuesday. "The ankle is stable". They will all feature in the Champions League final.

He said: "It would be flawless to have him back for the Villarreal game".

And Zidane insists he can not afford to worry about further injuries in the coming league matches, preferring to pick his best available XI. "But with him nothing is impossible".

Lionel Messi restored Barcelona's lead in the second half but Gareth Bale's sublime goal leveled the scores once more.

Zidane also said that we know that Liverpool is playing really good and we know their strengths too. "An English team, who defends, who fights, know how to do that".

"Sometimes they need a rest, but I'm not anxious about injuries". Liverpool, still battling for Champions League qualification in the Premier League, will not have luxury of resting star players like Salah, who is considered key to them beating Real.

Ronaldo's availability for the game is likely to have a huge bearing on Liverpool's hopes of lifting a 6th European Cup as Jurgen Klopp's men look to stop Real; winning the trophy for a third year in a row.
