Team news & rosters

PositionPortugal roster
Goalkeepers Patricio, Costa, Sa
Defenders Guerreiro, Fonte, Soares, Cancelo, Mendes, Dalot, Inacio, Djalo
Midfielders Moutinho, Carvalho, B. Silva, Pereira, Fernandes, Nunes, Otavio, Vitinha

Cristiano Ronaldo has 90 minutes - and maybe more - to save his World Cup dream, but Portugal will have to do it the hard way with a few key absences.

Pepe will miss the match through a case of Covid-19, while Ruben Dias has already been ruled out injured, presenting some headaches at the back - but their captain will intend to drag his side all the way by their feet if he has to.

Predicted Portugal starting XI: Patricio; Cedric, Fonte, Inacio, Guerreiro; Moutinho, Pereira, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Jota.

PositionTurkey roster
Goalkeepers Cakir, Bolat, Bayındır
Defenders Erkin, Ayhan, Soyuncu, Demiral, Celik, Aziz, Muldur, Kabak, Yılmaz
Midfielders Calhanoglu, Yazici, Kokcu, Omur, Tokoz, Antalyali, Kutlu, Sinik
Forwards Yilmaz, Under, Unal, Akturkoglu, Dursun, Akgun, Bozok

Turkey know they arrive as underdogs to this game - but that will simply fire them up all the more to end their hosts' hopes of handing their star man a send-off on the biggest stage possible.

Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is the likely cog that will help the machine tick for them, but it will still be an uphill battle for them to spring a shock in Portugal.

Predicted Turkey starting XI: Cakir; Celik, Soyuncu, Demiral, Erkin; Under, Calhanoglu, Antalyali, Akturoglu; Yilmaz, Yazici.
