Ecuador will not be at full strength either..
"Ecuador are likely to be without highly-rated central defender Erazo Frickson after the 24-year-old picked up an adductor problem, which means Oscar Bagui is likely to win his 17th cap. The absence of Michael Arroyo should also open up a spot for lively Morelia winger Jefferson Montero, who will play opposite Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia."
also, CR7 will play
"My body and soul is with the national team," Ronaldo told Efe News Agency. "It is with great pride that I represent Portugal and whether or not I am at 100 percent I plan to make my contribution."
