Photo Paolo Ferreira- not on Chelsea bench in last 2 games. Does he still have a place in the Portugal starting lineup?

Paolo Ferreira was not in the call-up list for Chelsea's last 2 games, Hull 0-3 Chelsea (Oct. 29, 2008), Chelsea 5-0 Sunderland (Nov. 1, 2008).

Will Ferreira be in the starting lineup in Brazil - Portugal on Nov. 19, 2008?

If Bosingwa stays injury-free then he'll be the right-back.

Does left-back Antunes deserve more playing time?

Ferreira lost his right-back position with the Portugal national team to Jose Bosingwa.

According to the last 3 games, Queiroz's options for right back are Bosingwa, then Miguel. Ferreira played as a left-back. If Ferreira does not play regularly with Chelsea then he might lose his left-back place to Antunes, (Lecce, Serie A).

The last time left-back Antunes played for Portugal was in the friendly Portugal 5-0 Faroe Islands, Aug. 20, 2008. He played 90 minutes. It was the first game with Carlos Queiroz in charge.
