Portugal: Rui Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Bruno Alves, Elizeu, William Carvalho, Adrienne, Joao Mario, Rafael, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo

Bulgaria: Vladislav Stoyanov, Strahil Popov, Alexander Alexandrov, Nikolai Bodurov, Zhivko Milanov, Svetoslav Dyakov, Ivaylo Chochev, Mikhail Alexandrov, Marcelinho, Ivelin Popov, Dimitar Rangelov


Graduates of Ivaylo Petev will have a very difficult task to deal with three-time winner of the Ballon d'Or Cristiano Ronaldo in the middle of Portugal. The two national teams will play controls that analyst Gol.bg Georgi Iliev, Michael described as a contest between Maybach and Pernik Golf 3000 Levs

Expected attack of the home team the lead Ronaldo and Nani, who were teammates at Manchester United, and Ricardo Carvalho out of the accounts of the Iberians through injury. For Bulgaria does debut will Marcelinho, who will stand on your favorite position - behind striker Dimitar Rangelov, but the two wings will act Ivelin Popov and Mikhail Alexandrov. As supporting midfielders holders will start Svetoslav Dyakov and Ivaylo Chochev and over goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov will play Strahil Popov, Alexander Alexandrov, Nikolai Bodurov and Zhivko Milanov.

Bulgaria has a positive balance in direct matches with Portugal - 5 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, the last official match between the two teams played in 1973, when the battle is qualified to Mondial'74 and finished 2: 2 in Portugal. Otherwise the last two meetings are friendly and they are losing - 0: 1 in 1984 and in 1992 to 1: 2, and in both cases we visited. Portuguese coach Fernando Santos even revealed that he has chosen us for rival because of the similarity of "lions" with the team of Iceland, which is a rival to Portugal in the group stage of the European Championship in France.

After a few days, "Mariners" have a far harder match - household Belgium, for which we expect to not play at 100 percent tonight. Then he will visit Bulgaria to Macedonia and certainly Marcelinho and company will save energy tonight. For this our forecast is that they will not lose a lot in Leiria.
