Guerreiro out, Silva major doubt for PortugalĀ“s semi-final clash

Andrew Durante is beaten to the ball by Cristiano Ronaldo

England manager Gareth Southgate and assistant Steve Holland have visited Russian Federation during the Confederations Cup to assess the logistics in each of the four cities - Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi - being used as venues for the competition.

Portugal's captain will face tax evasion charges in a Madrid court next month but has dazzled on the pitch in Russian Federation, claiming Man-of-the-Match awards in all three games, netting two goals and providing an assist.

Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has all 23 players fit and midfielder Charles Aranguiz has recovered from a knock in Sunday's 1-1 draw against Australia.

"Let's hope they are able to play at the same level tomorrow as we've seen until now".

The man himself did not go that far but did take consolation in the fact he had go through three games without any obvious errors and reflected on the team's all-round display in similarly lukewarm fashion. It is therefore uncertain as to whether he will be fit to continue playing in the tournament. "We are one of the best teams in Africa but there is still a difference between us and modern football".

"I think the four best teams are here so they will be some good semi-finals". Raphael Guerreiro is also still recovering from a left ankle blow he suffered in the 1-0 win over Russian Federation.




- Portugal are the joint-highest scorers in this year's Confederations Cup (7 - level with Germany), while both Portugal and Chile have conceded the fewest goals (2).

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. - Cristiano Ronaldo has scored twice in this year's tournament - no other player has scored more often.

Back-to-back Copa America winners Chile face European conquerors Portugal in Kazan on Thursday in what promises to be a fairly even contest.

Stefan Marinovic had a torrid time against the powerful Portugal line-up.

When Ronaldo made a great run that attracted the entire Mexican defense toward him in the Confederations Cup opener, Quaresma found space and didn't waste the opportunity to give Portugal an important opening goal. - Three of Chile's four goals at these finals have come after half-time.
