KICK off: 4 June 20:30
Team news: Robert Sanchez is one of two uncapped players in the Euro 2020 squad, but it has been widely reported that the 23-year-old will be given the chance to start between the sticks against Portugal with a view to potentially being given the nod for the clash with Sweden on June 14. Marcos Llorente is expected to start at right-back for La Roja, while there are also likely to be positions in the XI for Eric Garcia, Pau Torres, Jordi Alba and Pedri. Enrique has plenty of decisions to make further forward, but Gerard Moreno – off the back of an excellent season for Villarreal – is in a strong position to start, while Ferran Torres and Mikel Oyarzabal should also feature as part of a front three for the warm-up clash. As for Portugal, there is a chance that Manchester City duo Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva – certain starters at Euro 2020 – could feature on the bench due to their involvement in the Champions League final, but Joao Cancelo was not involved for the Premier League champions and should therefore be in the first XI. Diogo Jota made his return from injury as a late substitute in Liverpool’s final match of the 2020-21 Premier League season, meanwhile, and the 24-year-old should be in the starting side here. Joao Felix could join Jota and Cristiano Ronaldo in the final third of the field, while Danilo and Joao Moutinho could start in midfield to give Bruno Fernandes licence to break forward.
