    Given the anticipated weather conditions tomorrow in Luxembourg, I would go with;

    ————Paciencia—-CR7———
    Bruma—————————-B.Silva
    ————Fernandes-Neves———
    Rui———-Fonte——Dias——Semedo
    ———————Patricio

    Bruma has good traction in the rain and his speed would Cause chaos to the luxembougian defence.

    Andre Silva as horrible as he is for club would have scored a hattrick vs Lithuania with the balls coming in. Unlike Felix and Paciencia Silva knows how to score inside the box.

    Ronaldo will most likely break the scoring record at Euro 2020. Assuming he plays in the friendlies leading up to it.

    Serbia lead Ukraine 1-0
    At the moment, Portugal drop to third.
    The pitch looks brutal in Luxembourg.

    This team is too defensive.

    Santos is so damn frustrating sometimes. Why are we scared to attack?

    The Silva decision is also baffling to me.

    Lux has now had several better chances than us. Their counters are getting through very easily. We can't pass in the last third. The pitch is brutal but we knew that - have to adapt to the conditions though.

    This midfield is an absolute Joke. Pizzi and Fernandes are just as big of frauds as Felix. Danilo has to bail them out repeatedly while they provide nothing to the attack

    what the hell is Pizzi doing? Trying (and failing) to do tricks while Portugal struggles?

    My grandfather's potato farm was smoother than this field. Jokes aside, we are sucking. Can't attack at all.

    The close up of the pitch... jesus. I don't blame some of the bad passes but I don't like the poor dribbles and soft passes by Andre Silva at the top of the box that kill nearly every attack. He has no business doing that. He needs to freaking shoot the ball. That's what he's there for.

    I don't get all the short passes near the area, just shoot the damn ball.

    I thought old man Jose Fonte was going to bust a hernia chasing Rodrigues down

    What a joke of a game. Some of the passes and shots on this pitch look like amateur level by both teams. Just goes to show how important a good pitch is.

    Exactly - on such a bad pitch you can't pass your way to a goal.

    Magical pass from Bernardo good finish from Bruno Fernandes. About time he did something good.

    More passion in the stands at Luxumberg and Lithuania away than any game at Luz per person.
