Portugal vs Turkey: Team news

With Ruben Dias injured and Joao Cancelo suspended, Portugal's backline has been further depleted by Pepe testing positive for COVID-19.

Santos will also miss midfielder Ruben Neves and goalkeeper Anthony Lopes due to injuries. Renato Sanches is also injured, though a suspension would have kept him out anyway.

Turkey defender Mert Muldur is set to return after serving his ban. Veteran striker Burak Yilmaz has been consistent but expect Stefan Kuntz to explore his options in attack.
