    James Rodriguez has been ruled out of Colombia's friendly against Peru on Friday after suffering a knee injury in training.

    The Real Madrid midfielder, 28, will miss the clash in Florida after hurting his left knee, the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) said in a statement on Thursday.

    James complained of "discomfort" in his left knee during training, leading to the FCF ruling him out of the Peru fixture.

    "The player was evaluated by the medical body and his first diagnosis is reserved," the statement said.

    "For now and as a precaution, the player James Rodriguez is ruled out for the match against Peru.

    "In the next few hours, a detailed imaging study will be carried out to confirm the definitive diagnosis."

    Colombia are winless in their past five matches and will also face Ecuador on Tuesday.

    James has made nine appearances for Madrid this season, scoring once.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is the world's best player and is always hungry for more, Portugal team-mate Mario Rui said.

    Ronaldo inspired Portugal to a 6-0 thrashing of Lithuania in Euro 2020 qualifying on Thursday, scoring a hat-trick in the Group B win.

    Mario Rui lauded his 34-year-old team-mate after Portugal moved a step closer to qualifying for next year's showpiece tournament.

    "He is the best in the world, never tired of winning, wanting more, and it is this hunger that makes him what he is," the Napoli left-back said, via A Bola.

    "We are happy to have him on the team and I hope he will continue to give us joy as he has done so far."

    Pizzi, Goncalo Paciencia and Bernardo Silva also scored for Portugal, who are second in the group on 14 points, behind Ukraine (19) but ahead of Serbia (13).

    Portugal can secure their place when they visit Luxembourg on Sunday and Mario Rui said a tough task awaited his side.

    "Mathematically, we know it is not [guaranteed] yet," he said. "We will face a tough team, Luxembourg, we still had that confirmation with the result in Serbia [who won 3-2].

    "We know it will be a very difficult game, but our goal is to be at Euro 2020 and we will try to bring all three points to Portugal."
