The Portuguese football team returns to training today, in Budapest, after tying with France (2-2), in the final round of Group F, and earning a place in the round of 16 of the Euro2020.

In the session scheduled for 18:00 (17:00 in Lisbon), at the Illovszky Rudolf Stadium, in Budapest, the Portuguese coach, Fernando Santos, will only have the used substitutes and those who were not an option in the Puskás Arena, while the holders in the match with France must do recovery work.

Defender Nuno Mendes, with muscle problems that ruled him out of the match against Germany on Saturday and the duel with France on Wednesday, should continue with recovery on the sidelines, and is now aiming for a return and the clash with Belgium in Seville on Sunday.

In addition to Sporting's full-back, Danilo may also not be part of the session, after being hit by French goalkeeper Lloris during the first half, having been replaced at half-time by João Palhinha, as well as Nelson Semedo, who also left with complaints of the game with the Gauls.

With 2-2 in Germany-Hungary, the Portuguese team finished in third place in the first phase, passing to the next stage with four points, the same as Germany (second) and one less than France (first). On the other hand, Hungary has being eliminated, with two.
