Nani said in Portuguese when he arrived in Oeiras "I still feel pain on my shoulder. There are still two more days. If it gets better then it's the coach who'll decide."

Benfica goalkeeper Moreira also spoke to journalists and said in Portuguese that the game against Liechtenstein is "a good test, the last one before the double header" in September. These types of games are important because it lets the players be at "200 %" for the games against Denmark and Hungary.
