Santos unveils Portugal Euro 2016 squad

Fernando Santos has revealed a 23-man Portugal squad for the Euro 2016 finals, with Bernardo Silva missing after suffering a thigh injury.

The Selecao eased off to the tournament finals, and they have since been placed alongside Iceland, Austria and Hungary in Group E.

Rather than waiting for the 31 May deadline, the national team coach today announced his final squad for the tournament in France.

Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva picked up a thigh injury at the worst possible time, and he misses out on the final squad.

Star players Danny and Fabio Coentrao had been earlier ruled out through injury, whereas veteran defender Ricardo Carvalho returns to the side.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos switched to a 4-4-2 formation at the turn of the year, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani expected to form the attacking partnership in France.

The squad will gather at the new Cidade do Futebol on 23 May, and they will face the likes of Norway (29 May), England (2 June) and Estonia (8 June) in their final warm-up games.

Portugal Euro 2016 squad: 

Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício (Sporting), Anthony Lopes (Lyon), Eduardo (Dinamo Zagreb);
