.Portugal vs Italy:

Portugal will be confident of beating Japan and reaching back-to-back UEFA Nations League today.

With talk of a 'Golden Generation' not living up to the hype, the last-eight spot of four years ago was Belgium's best showing since 1986. If victorious, they will face the victors between Brazil and Mexico.

Romelu Lukaku has four goals in two games and will hope to add to his tally as he trails England's Harry Kane by one.

The two nations have faced each other five times, with Japan winning two, drawing two and losing just once. 

Their only loss came in the most recent encounter as a Romelu Lukaku goal was enough in a friendly last November. 

 .Portugal vs Italy :.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah put the Pharaohs ahead in the 56th minute but Ronaldo pulled Portugal level two minutes into added time before planting Ricardo Quaresma's free-kick beyond Mohamed El Shenawy late on.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands were beaten at home by England as Jesse Lingard's strike ensured Ronald Koeman's first game in charge ended in defeat.

The former Everton and Southampton boss will be keen to bounce back immediately against the Euro 2016 champions in Geneva.

Possible Starting Lineup:

Belgium has the whole list of quality attacking players especially their traditional wingers with the likes of Andre Silva and Gonçalo Guedes who will be hoping to replace the likes of Nani and Quaresma in the near future. 

Andre Silva is likely to start upfront with Ronaldo, Bernando Silva and Nani supporting in the attack. While two of the three William Carvallho, Jao Mario and Jao Moutinho should take the central midfield roles.

Team News
Belgium go into Monday's World Cup last 16 match against Japan full of confidence but wary that relying on individual talent against similarly well-organised but less fancied teams has cost them dear in the past.

The two teams come into the knockout phase off the back of very different performances -- Japan embarrassingly strolled through a 1-0 defeat by Poland to advance by having fewer yellow cards than Senegal while Belgium threw calculations to the winds and saw their second-string beat England's reserve team 1-0, risking a possible quarter-final against Brazil.

Unbeaten in 22 games, Roberto Martinez's side can take comfort from a 1-0 victory over Japan in a friendly in Belgium last November in which their goal was scored by Romelu Lukaku, who has netted four times in two games in Russia so far and who is available to face Japan after an ankle injury.

"The opportunity of facing Japan with the mentality that the group has is a very positive moment for us," Martinez said ahead of Monday's match in Rostov-on-Don.

Noting Japan had dramatically changed their coach since last year's friendly -- Akira Nishino was brought in just two months ago -- he praised the side which beat group winners Colombia in their opening match. "They're going to be a competitive team," he said. "They know how to hurt you in a counter-attack.".

Predicted Line-Ups

Italy XI: Muslera; Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, Laxalt; Nandez, Vecino, Torreira, Bentancur; Suarez Cavani

Portugal XI: Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro, B. Silva, Carvalho, Moutinho, Fernandes, Ronaldo, Guedes

Portugal 23-Man World Cup 2018 Squad & Possible Starting Lineup

Pepe is likely to lead the defense if he is fit before the world cup, he will be partnered with Luiz Neto while Raphael Guerreiro and João Cancelo should take the fullback positions. As far as goalkeeping job is concerned, Portugal’s first choice Sporting CP should keep his place in the starting lineup.

Key Player: Cristiano Ronaldo

Have to be Ronaldo, who is the record goal scorer for Portugal and makes the difference when it really matters.

 Portugal system is built on solid defense and they don’t create many chances and thats where Ronaldo comes in who just need that half a chance to score. 

Ronaldo has build up a very impressive partnership with Andre Silva and their link up upfront will be key for Portugal’s chances.

Portugal 23 Men Squad: Portugal team is expected to be announced around 1 month before their opening game at the world cup so expect the announcement for 23-man squad somewhere around 15th May 2018.
