Portugal preparing to face Croatia

The Portuguese national football team have been in training in preparation for their defence of their League of Nations title, with a match against Croatia on 5 September in Porto.

So far, according to information provided by the Portuguese Football Federation, coach Fernando Santos has had all 25 players of the squad available for training and there are no injuries reported in the lead up to the game.

For the first time, the Portuguese team will be staying at the ‘Casa dos Atletas’ until they travel to Porto to face Croatia in the first round of Group 3.

Three days after the match at Estádio do Dragão, the Portugal team then travels to Solna, on the outskirts of Stockholm, to face Sweden.

The national team has yet to play a game in 2020 due to Covid-19. The last meeting took place on 17 November last year, in the 2-0 victory in Luxembourg, which qualified Portugal for the final stage of Euro 2020, which has been postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic.
