Portugal vs North Macedonia: Team news

Ruben Dias will once again remain out of action for Portugal due to an injury but the good news for the Portuguese camp is that Joao Cancelo will be back after missing out against Turkey due to suspension. Portugal's backline will be further strengthened with the return of veteran defender Pepe who had missed the last game after testing positive for COVID-19.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos, however, will also miss midfielders Ruben Neves and goalkeeper Anthony Lopes due to injuries.

North Macedonia will welcome back midfielders Eljif Elmas and Tihomir Kostadinov who did not feature against Italy due to suspensions. Boban Nikolov, who picked up a knock in their last game, will miss the tie against the Selecao.
