Coentrao to Miss Portugal’s Friendies

Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao has withdrawn from Portugal’s upcoming friendly against France with a left knee injury.

Newly appointed Portugal coach Fernando Santos- the former Greece coach who succeeded Paulo Bento- will not call up a replacement for Coentrao, who last played for Real in last month’s Madrid derby loss.

Malaga defender Antunes and Eliseu of Benfica are replacements already with Santos’ squad.

Portugal also face Denmark in another friendly after the game in Paris.
