Nuno Gomes, Maniche and Quaresma in Queiroz call-up list for next 2 Portugal games Oct. 11 against Sweden, Oct. 15 against Albania

The big surprise in the call-up list was Ricardo Quaresma. Queiroz hadn't called him for the last 2 Portugal games because he didn't play the pre-season wtih FC Porto. Now Quaresma is in the starting lineup for Inter's games. Jose Mourinho let Quaresma play 90 minutes in the big Milan derby last weekend.

No Helder Postiga. He is not in great shape but he's playing in Sporting. Hugo Almeida goes weekes without playing for Werder Bremen this season.

Here's the list, make sure you leave your thoughts on the players:

Sweden v. Portugal- October 11, 2008
Portugal v. Albânia October 15, Braga, 20h45 local time

The second game against Albania is at home. Portugal lost its last qualifier game AT HOME against Denmark. It's time to win at home because they can't afford to lose 3 points.
