Portugal XI vs Slovenia: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Euro 2024 today

Portugal have a full-strength line-up ready to face Slovenia in tonight’s Euro 2024 last-16 tie.

After making eight changes for the Group F finale against Georgia, in what was essentially a dead-rubber from their point of view, the Selecao are set to revert to their first-choice side following that shock 2-0 defeat.

Martinez will also change formation after a move to a three-man backline in that match, with a 4-2-3-1 system likely to be anchored by midfielders Joao Palhinha and Vitinha on Monday night.

Palhinha, goalkeeper Diogo Costa and star striker Cristiano Ronaldo were the only players not rested or suspended against Georgia and all three start again here.

Rafael Leao is back from suspension to take up his spot on the left flank ahead of Felix.

Joao Cancelo is again preferred to Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot with Bernardo Silva ahead of him on the right wing.

Pepe and Ruben Dias re-form as Portugal’s defensive partnership after Antonio Silva’s error for Georgia’s opening goal.
