Cristiano Ronaldo believes Roy Hodgson has made a mistake by not picking his former Manchester United team-mate Rio Ferdinand for Euro 2012 but the Real Madrid star still believes England can do well.

Portugal forward Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford and would like to have seen Ferdinand in Ukraine and Poland.

Ronaldo told The Sun: "Rio is the best centre-back in England and still one of the best in the world. I don't understand why he is not in the national team."
