The midfielder has shrugged off concerns over the Portugal skipper's fitness and says he will happily fill in at left-back to cover for the injured Fabio Coentrao

Veloso, however, holds few concerns over his team-mate.
"I'm not a doctor but from what I see, Cristiano Ronaldo is fine," he told reporters.
"He is training, he is jumping and he is shooting. There is not much else to say."
Meanwhile, full-back Fabio Coentrao has been ruled out of the World Cup after injuring his groin in the defeat to Germany, and midfielder Veloso says he would be happy to slot in at left-back to compensate for the Madrid man's absence.
"I'm in a group of 23 players and I'm ready to play in any position that the coach chooses. That could be at left-back or in central midfield," he said.
"I'll do so with pleasure, because what we all want is to play and to do the best we possibly can."
A back four of Joao Pereira, Ricardo Costa, Bruno Alves and Andre Almeida were seen playing together in training during an open session for the media, but Veloso says coach Paulo Bento has experimented with a number of set-ups during the week as he looks to solve the problem of Coentrao's injury and Pepe's suspension.
"You only saw the first 15 minutes. The whole group trained as the coach wanted to prepare [the players to be in] the best possible shape for the next game, because we all know how important it is," he added.
