A mouthwatering prospect awaits in Durban.
Brazilian-born Deco has again been ruled out for Portugal with the same hip injury that caused him to miss the 7-0 thrashing of North Korea. Ruben Amorim is also out and coach Carlos Queiroz is likely to stick with Hugo Almeida ahead of Liedson upfront.
Brazil will make two changes from the side that beat the Ivory Coast. Kaka is suspended so former Arsenal player Julio Baptista will replace him and Dani Alves is expected to play in place of the injured Elano.
Suspended: Kaka (Brazil). One booking from suspension: Almeida, Mendes, Ronaldo (Portugal); Ramires (Brazil) (BBC Sport)
