Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has been DROPPED by Portugal for their pivotal clash with France this evening.
As Group F was drawn ahead of the Euro 2020 tournament, we all looked forward to seeing three of the best teams in the world battle it out with each other.
France, Portugal, Germany and Hungary – by far the toughest group of any other in the competition.
Heading into the final match day of the group stage, it’s very much all to play for.
Any of the three heavyweights can top the group tonight if results go in their favour, so all three managers will want to get their team selections spot on.
It’s for that reason that eyebrows will be raised to see Bruno Fernandes among the substitutes for Portugal tonight, with Danilo Pereira, Joao Moutinho and Renato Sanches making up the midfield.
The Man United man was nowhere to be seen against Germany last time out, but his omission is still somewhat of a surprise.
Here’s what some football fans on Twitter have had to say…
Portugal have benched Bruno Fernandes after realising they already have Cristiano Ronaldo to take penalties.

Jose Mourinho yesterday: “We need to play with eleven players, in these two matches Bruno Fernandes was on the pitch but not playing.”
