Portugal will face off against Uruguay at the Lusail Iconic Stadium this Monday as they focus on collecting maximum points from this 2022 FIFA World Cup clash. The Portuguese players secured a hard-fought 3-2 win over Ghana recently which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Fernando Santos will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make one tweak to his side for this game. We can expect William Carvalho to play from the start in this World Cup contest versus Ghana.

4-3-3 Portugal Predicted Lineup To Face Uruguay

Defence

Diogo Costa will keep his spot in goal for the Portugal national team after conceding a couple of goals in his last appearance. Ruben Dias will get another chance to impress alongside Dani Pereira as they look to collectively put in a solid defensive showing versus their South American opposition.

Joao Cancelo will retain his place at right-back while Raphaël Guerreiro tries to put in a good performance as the left-back. Both of them would be eager to get forward and create some decent chances for their teammates up top.

Pepe and Diogo Dalot will have to settle for a place on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Santos could opt for a midfield comprised of William Carvalho, Ruben Neves and Bernardo Silva as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition in the middle of the park.

Both Silva and Neves would have to move the ball well if they want to find some holes in the Uruguay backline during the 90 minutes.

Joao Palhinha will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if Santos decides to call upon his services.

Attack

Joao Felix will once again get a chance to catch the eye as the left-sided wide player while Bruno Fernandes hopes to create some decent chances from the right flank.

Cristiano Ronaldo will spearhead Portugal’s attack yet again after getting his name on the scoresheet versus Ghana recently. He has to find a way to cause a few problems for the Uruguay centre-backs this Monday if Portugal are to secure maximum points from this World Cup game.

Rafael Leao and Andre Silva will be available for selection on the bench as they await their opportunity to influence the game in the final quarter if Portugal are in need of a goal by then.
