The Portuguese national football team has staged several training sessions at the Cidade do Futebol training centre in Oeiras ahead of two decisive World Cup 2018 qualification games against Andorra and Switzerland.

Fernando Santos’ team, including Cristiano Ronaldo, striker, Éder, who scored the winning goal in Euro 2016 and goalkeeper, Anthony Lopes, arrived at a hotel in Cascais late on Monday night.
The Portugal team, which is in second place in World Cup qualifying Group B, will play in Andorra on 7 October. The team will return to Portugal on 10 October for a massive game against Switzerland at the Estádio da Luz stadium.
Switzerland is currently the Group B leader and the game in Lisbon could be crucial for the Portuguese team to directly qualify for the World Cup final in Russia.
