The friendly match with Qatar is an opportunity for Portugal to practice before entering the World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
Less famous than Ronaldo 's team, but Qatar also made a strong impression when it reached the final of CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021. However, after this tournament, the West Asian team could no longer keep its good form.
In the last 3 matches, Qatar did not win, even lost 2 matches. Therefore, in the confrontation tonight, coach Ferrando Santos can give the substitutes a chance to show off. In the case of a deadlock, names like Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo or Bernardo Silva ... will be launched into the field.
