Sporting - PSV Aug 2nd, How will Helder Postiga, Miguel Veloso and Joao Moutinho do?

It's a long shot for Helder Postiga to be the 1st choice forward in the Portugal national team. At least for the next friendly on August 20th and 2010 World Cup qualifyer in September.

Watching the game, following it on the radio antena1 live tomorrow because of:

- Base formation Paolo Bento chooses

- Forward Helder Postiga. He had great performances in the Euro 2008, even scoring a goal in the quarterfinal. Let's see if he's the 1st choice forward in Sporting.

- Miguel Veloso
- Of course, the man of the moment- Joao Moutinho.

- more familiar with them before August 7th, Sporting - Sampdoria. That's the match I really want to see. I'm a fan of Antonio Cassano, "il ragazzo di Bari Vecchia."

In yesterday's training, Sporting coach Paulo Bento experimented with the defense. Put Marco Caneira next to Anderson Polga in the 'starting lineup' team. The back 4 he tested was: Abel, Caneira, Polga e Grimi, leaving usual starter Tonel to the 'substitutes' team.

Midfield: Adrien, Rochemback, Vukcevic e Romagnoli
Forwards: Derlei e Postiga na frente de ataque.

The other team, 4x4x2:
Pedro Silva, Tonel, Daniel Carriço, Ronny;
Midfield: Miguel Veloso e Moutinho; Izmailov e Pereirinha
Forwards: Tiuí e Yannick.

- Your thoughts on Sporting - PSV? Helder Postiga, Joao Moutinho, and Miguel Veloso?
