Welcome to Portugal vs Czech Republic
Portugal continue their UEFA Nations League campaign as they welcome the Czech Republic to Lisbon, both teams looking to extend their unbeaten start, Portugal beat Switzerland 4–0, while the Czech Republic defeated Spain. with an impressive 2-2 draw.
Fernando Santos once again looked to put his side in the encounter with Switzerland but despite such a huge success on home soil, changes are definitely on the way.
Pepe’s 39-year-old leg may not be able to handle three starts in the span of a week, so Domingos Duarte could be presented with an opportunity in defense alongside Rafael Guerreiro.
Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leo will also be hoping for a start after coming on as substitutes in the final match.
Diogo Costa and Rui Patricio will continue their fight for the glove in the side.
Conversely, Czech Republic injured left-back Jaroslav Zeleny in the first half against Spain, and his replacement Jakob Jancto was also called off during the half-time gap.
Jaroslav Silhavi is unsure of the seriousness of the two’s injuries at this stage, but right-back Milan Havel should prepare himself for an emergency stint in the opposite direction.
