Coentrao made a goal then scored one himself Sunday as Portugal beat Serbia 2-1 in European Championship Qualifying Group I.

The Portugese' defender's quality shone through as his team went top of their group with a win. He crossed for Ricardo Carvalho to score after just 10 minutes and then restored Portugal's lead on 63 minutes immediately after Serbia had equalized.

Coentrao got an assist as he returned to the side in Tuesday Real Madrid's 4-3 defeat to Schalke in the Champions League.

The defender returned to the starting line-up for the first time since injuring his calf in February. He looked shaky in his defensive duties and received a second half yellow card but did set-up Cristiano Ronaldo with a superb cross on 45 minutes.

Coentrao was back in the squad Saturday after returning from injury as Real Madrid lost 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao.

Coentrao didn't get on the field but was included on the bench against Bilbao. It was the defender's first involvement in the side since sustaining a calf injury during training in February and chances are that he'll be back playing soon.

Coentrao will be sidelined until March because of a calf injury he suffered during training this week, reports.

Coentrao has struggled to get many starts this season, so his injury absence certainly hurts Madrid's depth, but he there aren't likely many fantasy rosters that are affected.

Coentrao's groin injury, which he suffered in Portugal's World Cup opener against Germany on Monday, will rule him out for the remainder of the group stage, The Guardian reports.

Portugal's team doctor Henrique Jones confirmed that Coentrao would miss at least 10 days, which means he could theoretically return if Portugal can advance to the knockout stage. That won't be easy, as they face the USA on Sunday without fellow defender Pepe, and striker Hugo Almeida.

Coentrao suffered an apparent groin injury in Portugal's match against Germany in the World Cup on Monday, ESPN FC reports.

Coentrao was immediately subbed off after suffering the injury, indicating the severity. It's unclear if he'll miss any time, but Portugal will be in desperate need of his services after Pepe picked up a red card against Germany, banning him from playing against the United States.

Coentrao (thigh) will be unavailable for selection over the next 10 days due to a small muscle injury in his left thigh, according to Marca.

Coentrao's injury could mean he misses the next three games, including a tough away game to Galatasaray in the Champions League. The news certainly couldn't have come at a worse time for Madrid as first-choice left-back Marcelo is also set to miss this weekend’s clash against Villareal, with fellow defender Arbeloa also being rested for the game. This injury sweep at the position could mean new-signing Gareth Bale could begin his Real Madrid career in defence.

Updating previous reports, Coentrao will not join Manchester United on a season-long loan, after the paperwork was not completed in time before the transfer window closed, the Mirror reports.

United were hoping that Coentrao would be a serviceable replacement after they couldn't pry Leighton Baines away from Everton, but it appears that they simply couldn't complete the deal in time. Coentrao has asked for a transfer in the past away from Madrid, so the developments Monday certainly can't make him feel better about his time in Spain. Coentrao has yet to appear for Madrid this season and it's unlikely the failed loan will result in more playing time moving forward.
