Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe appeared unhindered by injuries in training Thursday ahead of their country's crunch World Cup qualifier with Russia.

Portugal's preparations for Friday's Group F clash had been disturbed by Ronaldo going off with a shoulder injury after scoring both goals in a 2-2 draw with Barcelona on Saturday, while his Real teammate Pepe has been troubled by a thigh problem in recent days.

Both players had reportedly trained on their own in Portugal on Wednesday.

At Moscow's Luzhniki stadium Thursday, they warmed up and trained with the rest of the team before both took part in a practice game.
