Former Greece coach Fernando Santos recently took over the Portugal job after Paulo Bento was sacked following an embarrassing loss against Albania.
The new manager is in the middle of an eight match ban for abusing match officials at the World Cup in Brazil however, and should be forced to watch from the stands unless the ban is temporarily lifted ahead of a possible appeal.
The game against Albania showed just how toothless Portugal are without Ronaldo, so it will be a big worry that the Real Madrid star picked up an injury during the side’s 2-1 loss against France on Saturday and is consequently a doubt for the clash.
Denmark come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Albania, and they are unlikely to be full of confidence when looking back at their record against the Portuguese. In 14 encounters Portugal have won nine times, while Denmark have won on just three occasions.
