Portugal vs Northern Ireland Preview, Live Streaming & Probable Lineup | Qualifier, 2014 World Cup
Date: 16 Oct 12
Venue: Estadio do Dragao, Porto, Portugal
Kick Off: 19.45
Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland are in Portugal and it is a bit of festive season out there as Cristiano Ronaldo prepares for his 100th international cap. So the task is cut out, stop Cristiano at all cost before he wreaks havoc. Gareth McAuley, Alex Bruce, Shane Ferguson and Chris Brunt will miss this fixture as will goalkeeper Lee Camp, which would mean Roy Carroll will be the goalkeeper again. The Portuguese too will have to recover from their 1-0 loss to Russia few days ago. Fabio Coentrao and Raul Meireles will not be available for the match due to injury.
