Portugal come into this contest having won 8 of their last 10 international matches, including a decisive 2-0 victory over Switzerland in World Cup Qualifying. Having finished first in their group with only one loss, the defending European Cup champions are in a rich vein of form. With four consecutive clean sheets, Fernando Santos has successfully fashioned a squad resolute in defence. The Portuguese will use this friendly as a tune-up before next year’s World Cup Finals in Russia; their opponents however, cannot say the same.
