Commentary

FULL-TIME! Portugal wrap up their final Euro 2016 preparatory friendly with a 7-0 victory over Estonia. Goals from Ronaldo, Quaresma, Danilo and Eder wrapped up the result, as well as a calamitous own goal from Mets. That's all that we have time for from Lisbon, with Santos' men in high spirits after a brilliant performance.
89' Nani almost clips the top of the crossbar, after dipping a powerful shot goalwards from around 20 yards out. Portugal are still hungry for more goals, despite the scoreline.
M. Gussev
S. Puri
Estonia
87' Gussev replaces Puri for the dying minutes.
K. Kallaste
Yellow Card
Estonia
87' Kallaste picks up a booking, with the full-back stepping across Andre Gomes cynically.
86' Patricio finally has something to do, with Puri lashing a long-range effort just beyond the top right-hand corner. The Portugal goalkeeper dives to cover his angles, as that attempt was really travelling.
84' Portugal continue to dominate possession and call all of the shots, with Vieirinha seeing another attempted cross scrambled away. Eder bends a cross in from the right moments later, which Quaresma takes down, but his eventual delivery is headed out of harm's way.
82' Estonia will be longing for this contest to end, with less than 10 minutes now on the clock in Lisbon. Andre Gomes is fed in behind enemy lines, but the Valencia midfielder slams a shot straight at Londak's body! Quaresma picks up the scraps and whips in a cross, but it fails to find Eder.
André Gomes
Assist
Portugal
80' The Valencia man drives infield without a challenge, before clipping a well-weighted pass into his substitute striker.
Éder
Goal
Portugal
80' GOOOOOOOOOAL! EDER MAKES IT SEVEN! Andre Gomes drifts in from the right, before clipping a lovely diagonal ball into the path of the Lille striker. He takes a neat first touch, before slamming home an emphatic finish.
79' Portugal are relentessly pressing on, with the Selecao making a statement of what the rest of the continent might be in store for during Euro 2016. Quaresma has been imperious on the night, with Santos' men bound to be very high on confidence now.
Renato Sanches
Assist
Portugal
77' Renato Sanches drives forward from midfield, committing a couple of defenders in the process, before finding his team-mate in space on the right.
Ricardo Quaresma
Goal
Portugal
77' GOOOOOOOOAL! PORTUGAL MAKE IT 6-0! Renato Sanches finds the winger out on the right-hand side, who bursts into the box and fires a precise finish just inside the far upright! He is just on form tonight.
76' Vieirinha and Nani combine, before possession gets swept out to the left-hand side. Guerreiro delivers a cross, but Eder can only rise high to divert a looping header both high and wide of the target. Moments later, Quaresma tries to get in behind enemy lines, but is caught offside in the process.
74' Nani tries to slide a through-ball into Eder, but the ex-Fenerbahce winger's pass is cut out with ease. Vieirinha slides a pass into Quaresma, but the dangerous wide man is hunted down by three blue shirts.
72' Santos' men are dominating possession at the moment, with the result certainly not in any doubt at all. Portugal have been able to control this entire second half, with the visitors unable to even trade blows on the break.
K. Vassiljev
H. Anier
Estonia
70' Anier is the latest man to be hooked off, with Vassiljev inserting into the midfield battle.
William Carvalho
Danilo Pereira
Portugal
70' W. Carvalho comes into the game for the home side, with Danilo given a rest.
A. Raudsepp
R. Klavan
Estonia
68' Raudsepp is thrown into the fray, with Klavan the latest man to be replaced for Estonia.
68' Portugal are happy to take their time in possession now, with Estonia appearing to be void of belief. Quaresma continues to be the heartbeat of the Selecao attack, with the experienced winger surely set to nail down a starting place for the hosts' opening group game in France.
P. Marin
D. Kruglov
Estonia
66' Kruglov takes his leave, with Marin given some time to make an impression in the back four.
66' Quaresma whips in another corner from the right, with the loose ball falling to Guerreiro on the edge of the box. The Lorient left-back shoots in hurried fashion, but can only drag a terrible attempt wide of the target.
65' Any delivery into the box from Quaresma is causing absolute havoc, with Londak looking incredibly shaky throughout this contest. The Estonia shot-stopper has been irresponsible with his handing and isn't inspiring confidence among his defenders.
R. Sappinen
A. Dmitrijev
Estonia
63' Sappinen comes into the game, with Dmitrijev taking his leave with around 30 minutes left to play.
63' Londak and Mets look as though they want the ground to swallow them up, with Estonia not giving a good account of themselves at all in Lisbon. The visitors do manage to win themselves a free-kick in a dangerous area, but Eder heads clear for the Selecao.
K. Mets
Own Goal
Estonia
61' OWN GOAL! Portugal go 5-0 up! Quaresma bends in a cross from the right-hand side, with Londak parrying the ball onto Mets. The deflection is powerful enough to carry it over the line and that is an embarrassing fifth.
Éder
João Mário
Portugal
59' Eder replaces Joao Mario, which should see a reshuffle of Santos' personnel.
Renato Sanches
João Moutinho
Portugal
58' Moutinho is replaced by who will probably be his natural heir, Renato Sanches.
Ricardo Carvalho
Pepe
Portugal
58' It is a straight swap in defence, with Pepe being replaced by R. Carvalho.
57' Portugal are still very much in control in this second half, with Estonia only having half an hour left to endure. The visitors have struggled to even break out of their own half in this second period.
Ricardo Quaresma
Assist
Portugal
55' Quaresma bends another fantastic ball into the penalty area, with Danilo applying the finish.
Danilo Pereira
Goal
Portugal
55' GOOOOOOOAL! DANILO MAKES IT 4-0! The corner delivery is swept into the box, with the Porto midfielder rising highest to thud a powerful header into the turf, with the ball bouncing up off the turf and into the ceiling of the net.
54' Kallaste manages to track back and deny Vieirinha, with Portugal continuing to threaten down the right-hand side. The Wolfsburg defender gets back but can only concede a corner.
52' Vieirinha takes aim from 25 yards out, but can only direct a low drive just beyond the far post! Londak was worried, but will be pleased to see the ball skip off the turf and then head beyond the upright. Moments later, the same Portuguese man needs a little breather, after landing awkwardly on the base of his back.
50' Quaresma checks onto his left foot, before trying to curl a finish into the top-left corner, but the Portuguese winger can only lift a sluggish effort a few yards beyond the far upright. Disappointing from the hosts' goalscorer.
48' Klavan is helped back to his feet after a sore blow from the opposition goalkeeper, with Portugal then conceding a corner. The hosts clear, before countering, with a back-post cross from Nani headed just over the crossbar.
Nani
Cristiano Ronaldo
Portugal
46' Ronaldo is taken off at the break and presumably wrapped in cotton wool, with Nani coming on in his place.
Vieirinha
Cédric Soares
Portugal
46' Cedric is withdrawn at the break, with Vieirinha inserted into the fray.
46' We are back underway in the second half in Lisbon! The hosts have been in control since opening the scoring, with the home fans buying into the belief that the Selecao can make a splash at Euro 2016.
HALF-TIME! Portugal go into the break with a commanding 3-0 lead, courtesy of goals from Ronaldo and Quaresma, with the duo looking to be in good shape heading into Euro 2016. It seems to be a question of how many, at the moment, with the Selecao feeling the mood in Lisbon.
João Mário
Assist
Portugal
45' Mario plays a lovely one-two with the goalscorer, before sliding a pass into the box that his team-mate simply couldn't not turn home.
Cristiano Ronaldo
Goal
Portugal
45' GOOOOOOOAL! RONALDO MAKES IT 3-0! Mario and the Real Madrid man combine down the right-hand side, with the former slotting a dangerous pass into the penalty box. The former Sporting forward lifts a lovely finish beyond Londak and into the back of the net. That makes it 3-0 just before the break!
43' Only a few minutes stand between the Selecao and the half-time break, with the home fans suddenly in much better spirits. Two moments of magic from Quaresma have unlocked the door against Estonia, with Santos left wondering as to whether he will be starting the maverick wide man against Iceland.
41' There is a brief stoppage in play, with Quaresma going down heavily after an innocuous challenge with Mets. The winger appears to have taken a slight knock to the head, but should be fine to continue.
João Mário
Assist
Portugal
39' Mario slots a pass into his team-mate, but this goal is all about the audacious finish.
Ricardo Quaresma
Goal
Portugal
39' GOOOOOOOOAL! INSPIRATION FROM QUARESMA! The Porto winger spots Londak slightly off his line, choosing to outrageously chip the goalkeeper from a fairly tight angle. The ball spirals over the helpless shot-stopper, with the curl taking it narrowly inside the far post. That makes it 2-0 in quick succession!
38' Less than 10 minutes remain in the first half, with Portugal finally grabbing the lead from a resolute Estonian line-up. Patricio has mainly been a spectator, meaning that the visitors will need to muster up something special to recover.
Ricardo Quaresma
Assist
Portugal
36' Quaresma uses the outside of his right foot to curve a wondrous delivery onto the forehead of his team-mate at the back post.
Cristiano Ronaldo
Goal
Portugal
36' GOOOOOOOOAL! RONALDO MAKES IT 1-0! The Portugal captain thumps a bullet header beyond Londak at the back post, with Quaresma bending in a lovely cross from the left-hand side. The flamboyant winger whips a gorgeous ball to the far upright with the outside of his right boot.
35' The away side continue to keep a lot of players behind the ball, with Teniste the latest defender to be called into action. Mario tries to curl a cross into Ronaldo, but the Estonia right-back nods a looping pass-back into Londak's arms.
33' Opportunity missed by Ronaldo! The Real Madrid man is set into the clear, but lashes a poor attempt straight down Londak's throat! Moutinho follows up, but the Estonia goalkeeper makes another save. The visitors try to counter, but Patricio is quick off his line to gobble up a loose pass. Moments later, Ronaldo shoots wide from range.
31' The hosts' defence hasn't had a lot to do thus far, with Estonia absorbing pressure and playing conservatively and slowly while in possession. Countless deliveries are being whipped into the area from both flanks, but Cedric and Guerreiro continue to struggle to pick out the towering leaps of Ronaldo.
29' Ronaldo tries to meet a dipping back-post cross, but Klavan gets to it first! The Estonia defender concedes a corner as a result, but Teniste heads half clear from the set-piece, with the follow-up delivery punched into touch by Londak.
27' The away side manage to clear the danger yet again, with Quaresma trying to burst into the penalty box on this occasion, as they continue to hold out well. Cedric whips a cross into the area moments later, but Teniste hooks the ball out of harm's way.
25' Estonia continue to hold out in fairly solid fashion, with Pehrsson's men definitely not camped on the edge of their own penalty area. Portugal are playing at half-pace when off the ball, but have a real sense of urgency about them when the likes of Ronaldo and Quaresma get on it.
23' Guerreiro is released to the left byline once again, but is unable to keep the ball in play. Portugal are getting some joy from their full-backs, but they need to retain possession much better in order to let Cedric and the aforementioned Lorient man get up in support.
21' Guerreiro cuts back a cross from the left byline, but his ball into Moutinho's path sees the Monaco midfielder pressured quickly. The Portuguese tries to shoot, but a deflected attempt is gathered up easily by Londak.
19' Pehrsson's men are not looking to be intimidated by the home team at all, with the Swede's set-up making it tough for Quaresma and Ronaldo to threaten without running into traffic. Estonia win a free-kick on the left-hand side, after a cynical foul from Andre Gomes. Patricio claims the delivery.
17' Danilo works the ball out to Quaresma on the right, but a left-footed shot from the Porto winger is blocked with ease. Cedric picks up the scraps, but the Selecao choose to rebuild.  Estonia have been defending diligently thus far.
15' Ronaldo sees a close-range effort bundled into a defender, before the same Real Madrid man checks inside from the right and rifles a powerful effort behind for a corner with the aid of a deflection. Pepe meets the corner, but heads high into the air, with the visitors clearing at the second time of asking.
13' Portugal are being frustrated at present, with Estonia keen to hold onto possession and settle down into some slow passing. They aren't wasting the ball with ambitious forays forward. Ronaldo drives down the left, before cutting inside Dmitrijev, but sees an attempted shot blocked.
11' Estonia try to get their foot on the ball with some extended possession, with Portugal not in any rush to try and press intensely to regain the ball. The visitors work patiently from flank to flank, but aren't going anywhere fast at all. Santos' men appear content to sit back and conserve their energy.
9' A second corner delivery is swung into the box by Quaresma, but Pepe gets too much under the ball and sends his effort looping high and wide of the target. The Selecao have been positive thus far, with the aforementioned winger at the heart of things.
7' Chances have been few and far between in the opening minutes, with Estonia keen to sit deep and then break upfield at pace. Portugal win themselves a corner on the left, which is  taken short and eventually crossed in by Quaresma with a rabona, but the move ends with Ronaldo firing wide with the aid of a deflection.
5' Portugal work the ball from left to right, but a looping cross from Cedric is too high for Ronaldo to rise to turn home. Teniste is able to take a throw-in on the opposite flank as a result, but the visitors quickly give possession away and the Selecao get back on top.
3' Pepe is forced to cover across and stop a dangerous Estonia attack in its tracks, with Anier bursting into the box and then looking to shoot. The resulting corner is headed easily clear, before the Selecao break upfield themselves. Andre Gomes heads down the right, before Klavan lashes a clearance into the stands.
1' We are underway in the first half in Lisbon! Portugal will be looking for another win in order to maintain their positive vibes heading into Euro 2016, while Estonia will be trying to take inspiration from Georgia beating Spain 1-0 in Madrid yesterday.
Estonia substitutes: Tamm, Liivak, Gussev, Raudsepp, Sappinen, Frolov, Vaikla, Marin, Jurgenson, Meerits, Vassiljev, Kokla.
Estonia starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Londak; Teniste, Baranov, Klavan, Kallaste; Dmitrijev, Mets; Puri, Antonov, Kruglov; Anier.
Portugal substitutes: Carvalho, Eder, Vieirinha, William Carvalho, Anthony Lopes, Renato Sanches, Nani, Rafa Silva, Eliseu, Eduardo, Adrien.
Portugal starting line-up (4-4-2): Rui Patricio; Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro; Joao Mario, Danilo, Moutinho, Andre Gomes; Quaresma, Ronaldo.
TEAM NEWS: Estonia opt to not make many changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Latvia last time out. Ragnar Klavan provides experience at centre-back, though Konstantin Vassiljev is only named on the bench. Taijo Teniste's selection suggests that the visitors could be lining up with a fairly defensive line-up.
TEAM NEWS: Cedric starts at right-back for the hosts, with Raphael Guerreiro preferred at left-back to Eliseu. Jose Fonte starts alongside Pepe, with Bruno Alves missing out due to a red card picked up against England. Danilo will sit in midfield, with Ricardo Quaresma and Andre Gomes asked to try and support Cristiano Ronaldo up top. 
Despite a disappointing result last time out in London, Portugal can still take some heart from a recent 3-0 victory over Norway. Santos has had his chances to change his personnel around and experiment, but tonight should see a more orthodox selection from the Selecao boss.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of Portugal's final friendly ahead of Euro 2016. Estonia have travelled to Lisbon to face off against the Selecao, with Cristiano Ronaldo deemed to be fully fit and raring to go ahead of the tournament in France. Fernando Santos' men have been in reasonable shape of late, but will want to redeem themselves following a 10-man defeat against England.
