Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
After qualifying for the Europa League's group stage last Thursday on a nervy but deserved way we are back in the league today trying to get our first win.
Domingos said that we have to win this one so let us see if his line-up will tell us if he is ready to walk the talk. It's true and understandable that a coach should not change the line-up of his team because of the amount of jeers that player X or Y gets, but the truth is that Yannick Djaló never showed, and goes on not showing, enough quality to be part of this club's squad.
Nice to see André Martins getting his first league call and lots of expectation about the possible league debut of Bojinov.
Here's the list of players called for tonight's match:
Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício and Marcelo Boeck.
Defenders: João Pereira, Daniel Carriço, Anderson Polga, Oguchi Onyewu and Evaldo.
Midfielders: André Santos, Fito Rinaudo, Stijn Schaars, Marat Izmailov, Diego Capel, Jeffrén, André Carrillo and André Martins.
Forwards: Valeri Bojinov, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Yannick Djaló, Hélder Postiga and Diego Rubio.
