Mário Rui and Rúben Neves exempted the selection – selections


Midfielder Rúben Neves and defender Mário Rui were fired from the Portuguese team after they saw the yellow card in the match with Italy, being suspended for the last round.
"Rúben Neves and Mário Rui will lose the game with Poland, the League of Nations because of the punishment, and have already been fired from the national team," said the Portuguese Football Federation.

Wolverhampton midfielder and Napoli defender received a yellow card in the Saturday match in Milan, where Portugal won 1-1 with Italy and won a place in the last four leagues of the Nations.
