Cristiano Ronaldo has been named in Portugal's starting lineup for their World Cup clash with Germany this evening.

The 29-year-old had been a doubt because of a knee problem, but he has been passed fit to face the Germans in Salvador.

Ronaldo's Real Madrid teammates Pepe and Fabio Coentrao are also included, while Joao Moutinho and Nani also get the nod from coach Paulo Bento.

Mesut Ozil is among those who start for Germany as Philipp Lahm, Mario Gotze, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller join him in the side.
