Ukraine vs Portugal - Who's in and who's out?
Ukraine make it to this match without Artem Kravets, who was left out of the call up due to an injury. Roman Bezus was listed as an alternate, but no spots have opened in Ukraine's squad list. The team's chances will rely on the skills of Yevhen Konoplyanka and Andriy Yarmolenko, who are ranked second and third in Ukraine's all-time goalscorers' list.
Portugal will face this game without Joao Cancelo, Daniel Carrico and Renato Sanches as their main absences, since coach Fernando Santos snubbed them from the squad that will play in this international break. The team will have a highly motivated Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch, since the Portuguese superstar will be looking for his 700th goal in all comps.
