Portugal-Sweden: free streaming, TV channel and compositions


By: Manu Tournoux

Portugal and Sweden face each other this Thursday for an anticipated friendly match (8:45 p.m.). Here is all the essential information about this meeting.

It is a poster which awakens some significant memories for lovers of the Portuguese selection. A decade ago, Cristiano Ronaldo almost single-handedly overthrew Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Sweden to help Portugal book their ticket to the 2014 World Cup.

Water has flowed under the bridges since then, and CR7 has broken all records with his nation. But he is no longer essential to his team, as evidenced by the rather surprising exit of Joao Cancelo this week. “He is an important player who spent fifteen years competing with Messi for the Ballon d'Or, but the peak of a footballer's career is between the ages of 25 and 32. He is an important player for us, but the national team does not depend entirely on him.”, released the Barcelonan for the Portuguese channel RTP. Without its five-time Ballon d'Or, absent this Thursday evening, Portugal, buoyed by a still exceptional promotion, will seek to confirm its rise in power in this interesting test match against Sweden.

The expected compositions

Portugal: Diogo Costa – Dalot, Ruben Dias, Inacio, Nuno Mendes – Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Joao Palhinha – Rafael Leao, Gonçalo Ramos, Francisco Conceição.

Sweden : Johansson – Krafth, Lindelof, Hien, Augustinsson – Karlstrom, Forsberg, Svanberg – Alexander Isak, Viktor Gyokeres, Dejan Kulusevski.
