Surprises: Maniche is back! No Ricardo Quaresma. No goalkeeper Ricardo again! Antunes is in the list AGAIN. Danny who moved from Dinamo Moscow to Zenith this season.

Daniel Fernandes (Bochum),

Paulo Ferreira (Chelsea),
Ricardo Carvalho (Chelsea),
Bruno Alves (FC Porto),
Fernando Meira (Galatasaray),
Pepe (Real Madrid),

Nuno Gomes (Benfica),
Yannick (Sporting Portugal),
Hugo Almeida (Werder Bremen)
Nani (Manchester United),
Simao (Atletico Madrid),

Maniche is playing regularly in Atletico Madrid. Scolari didn't call him up for the Euro 2008 when he was playing regularly at Inter. Yannick- on a goalscoring streak with Sporting, even scoring against FC Porto int he Supertaca 2008. I have no doubt Almeida will be on the bench.

- Your thoughts on the players in this Portugal list for the next 2 games? Who will be in the starting lineup? Who'll stay on the bench?
