Portugal will today complete their World Cup warm-up with a friendly against Nigeria.

The Super Eagles missed out on a ticket to Qatar after a play-off defeat to Ghana, who Portugal face first up in Group H next week, making them the ideal opposition to face in preparation.

A group also containing South Korea and Uruguay will be a test for the Selecao but their comparatively late kick-off in the tournament has opened up space for an extra 90 minutes of game time.

For Nigeria, this is a chance to build some more familiarity ahead of next year’s AFCON qualifiers.

Here are all the details ahead of the match...

Date, kick-off time and venue

Portugal vs Nigeria is scheduled for a 6.45pm GMT kick-off tonight, Thursday, November 17, 2022.

Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon will host the match.
