Guerreiro out, Silva major doubt for Portugal´s semi-final clash

Guerreiro out, Silva major doubt for Portugal´s semi-final clash

"World-class players have that ability", Pizzi said.

Portugal qualified as group leaders of group A and will face Chile who qualified as the runners-up in group B.

"We felt we let ourselves down in a couple of situations in a couple of halves where we didn't play to our potential but it's a learning curve for us".

"But it's going to be hard to play against us too, we'll go toe-to-toe and try to win". It is therefore uncertain as to whether he will be fit to continue playing in the tournament.

Loew, in his 150th match in charge of Germany, maintained his impressive record of reaching the semifinals of every tournament over the last decade.

Leaving Russia as last-place teams in their Confederations Cup groups, Cameroon and New Zealand are far from sure to return next year.




"I think the four best teams are here so they will be some good semi-finals".

Germany, who will face Mexico in Sochi on Thursday in the Confederations Cup semifinal, have been impressed by the facilities and climate in the Black Sea resort, which hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics.

A clever defender with a mean streak, Portugal's defense is anchored on Pepe, the Real Madrid central defender who has been at the heart of the team's back line for the past decade.

Santos also confirmed that full-back Raphael Guerreiro has not recovered from the ankle blow he sustained in the opening draw with Mexico, meaning he will also sit out the match.

Silva finally provided Portugal with further breathing space 10 minutes from time as the AC Milan-bound striker ran at the Kiwi defence before drilling into the roof of the net. "In our Dugout page fans will have the opportunity to see exclusive behind the scenes content from our teams including the best footballer in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, the best futsal player in the world, Ricardinho, and the best beach soccer player in the world, Madjer". - Chile's four goals have been scored by different players (Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas and Martin Rodriguez), with Vidal, Sanchez and Vargas also providing an assist.

Pizzi hopes to have the experienced Aranguiz, 28, fit to partner Arturo Vidal in Chile's defensive midfield core which helped win the Copa America title previous year.
