Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho included forward Cristiano Ronaldo in his squad for Tuesday’s Champions League game at home to Tottenham Hotspur, the La Liga club said on Monday.

Portuguese Ronaldo has not played since he was sidelined by a leg muscle strain two weeks ago but completed a full training session ahead of the quarter-final, first leg at the Bernabeu.
Brazilian playmaker Kaka joined Ronaldo in the squad along with fellow injury doubts Marcelo and Angel Di Maria, Real said on their website (www.realmadrid.com).
Striker Karim Benzema, who injured himself on duty with France, did not train on Monday and was left out.
The winners will play Spanish 2009 champions Barcelona or Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine in the semifinals.
