LIVE: Czech Republic Vs Portugal; Watch UEFA Nations League live streaming as Cristiano Ronaldo lead forward
Portugal will endeavour to keep their hopes of a UEFA Nations League finals berth alive when they travel to the Sinobo Stadium to meet the Czech Republic on Saturday evening.
Fernando Santos’s side currently occupy second place in League A Group 2 – one point below Spain – while their hosts sit third as they aim to preserve their top-flight status.
Following their failure to make it past Sweden in the qualifying playoffs for the 2022 World Cup, the Czech Republic will be finished with competitive action at the end of the month, and a first appearance on the biggest stage of them all since 2006 still eludes them.
The foundations are certainly there for Jaroslav Silhavy’s side with Adam Hlozek and Patrik Schick among their attacking options, and their start to life in Nations League A has been a solid, if yet unspectacular affair.
The Czech Republic have accumulated four points from their opening four games to sit third in the section – one point clear of Switzerland in the relegation spot – and it is still not impossible for Silhavy’s side to secure an unlikely place in the finals.
However, this week’s hosts ended the month of June with back-to-back 2-0 defeats to upcoming opponents Portugal and Spain, with Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia on target for the latter, and it is now six games without a clean sheet in all tournaments for the Czechs.
