Ronaldo on Vuvuzelas: "It is difficult for anyone on the pitch to concentrate"

SHOOT: No doubt. Seems like a nice guy. Says the vuvus are a problem but respects people's right to use them.

"It is difficult for anyone on the pitch to concentrate," the Portugal star told a press conference.

The metre-long plastic vuvuzelas have been a hit with fans at the World Cup stadiums in South Africa, but the noise of thousands being blown at once resembles a high-volume swarm of buzzing bees.

"Hardly anyone likes them, but the people who do like them are those who like to blow the instruments and make a racket."

As well as the vuvuzelas, Ronaldo said he was getting used to the much-criticised World Cup match ball.

"I'm more used to it than I was two weeks ago. I don't think it will be a problem," he said.

"We've trained enough with it to get accustomed to it and I'm sure the dribbles, the shots and the corners with it will all be fine."

Portugal start their Group G matches against the Ivory Coast on Tuesday.
