Chile feels the fatigue from its all-out play in Confed Cup

Michael Boxall competes with Cristiano Ronaldo

One player with a capability to help him continue achieving that in England is Fernando, since the Brazilian brilliantly screen's Manchester City's defence and sets off attacks.

They go into the match-up having netted seven times in three games - drawing 2-2 with Mexico, before beating Russian Federation 1-0 and thrashing the All Whites 4-0. It is therefore uncertain as to whether he will be fit to continue playing in the tournament.

Chile and Germany have booked their tickets for the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

"We still have 24 hours to decide if he plays or not, he has reacted well to his injury and we'll take the decision tomorrow", said Santos when asked about the former Monaco winger.

A clever defender with a mean streak, Portugal's defense is anchored on Pepe, the Real Madrid central defender who has been at the heart of the team's back line for the past decade.

Vidal's Chile side finished behind Germany in Group B to qualify for the last four of the World Cup preparation tournament, while Ronaldo's Portugal topped a group containing Mexico, New Zealand and hosts Russian Federation - who disappointed as they managed just a single win against the Kiwis to stumble out of the competition early.


Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches, 19, didn't make it to the Confederations Cup squad but is also expected to be part of Portugal's future.

Santos also confirmed that full-back Raphael Guerreiro has not recovered from the ankle blow he sustained in the opening draw with Mexico, meaning he will also sit out the match. - Cristiano Ronaldo has scored twice in this year's tournament - no other player has scored more often.

"It's only a matter of time before we start turning these results against top, top teams around".

Chile's biggest strength lie in their two most famous players, Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

- Portugal are the only side who have not been behind at any stage in the 2017 Confederations Cup. Neither had won a major trophy until 2015 - but Chile now has two Copa Americas, while Portugal became European champion previous year. - Three of Chile's four goals at these finals have come after half-time.
