Portugal v Spain – TEAM NEWS

Portugal make just one change from the team that has got them this far as Hugo Almeida comes in for the injured striker Helder Postiga, who is out for the rest of the tournament. Besiktas forward Almeida replaced Postiga and offers a greater aerial threat than the ex-Spurs man.

Spain have a striker conundrum of their own – whether to start with one at all. The pass masters looked a touch toothless with the False Nine formation that saw Cesc Fabregas spearhead a three-man attacking midfield, with calls for Fernando Torres or the as yet unused Fernando Llorente line up against Portugal.
