Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to group training ahead of the 2014 World Cup, the Portuguese Football Association has confirmed.

Ronaldo's fitness has been a concern after it was announced he was struggling with patellar tendinosis.

However, he looks to be winning his race to be fit in time for his nation's World Cup opener against Germany on June 16.

A statement on the Portuguese FA's official website said that Ronaldo and Raul Meireles are training with their teammates.

Pepe and Beto, meanwhile, are working on their leg injuries away from the group.

Portugal face Germany, Ghana and United States in Group G.
