Portugal and Germany are set to play today in their opener game in the Euro cup 2012. News confirm that Nani is only player in doubt for Portugal.
Nani who scored the only goal for Portugal on a 3-1 loss against Turkey also picked up an injury on his right foot. The major concern is that it is the same foot where he picked up an injury for Manchester united and was ruled out of the team for 9 weeks. Portugal coach Paulo Bento revealed yesterday that the winger might feel it difficult to overcome the injury he has experienced.
Bento told in a pre-match conference that Nani participated in the training season yesterday and he will be included in the warm-ups and it will be decided then if he will be able to make it or not. This proves that the valuable winger is in doubt for today’s opener for Portugal.
The Portuguese winger has earned more than 50 caps for his nation and can prove his devotion for his country as his 5 years long experience in Manchester can be a key achievement in this tournament.
