FIFA Confederations Cup 

Teams: Portugal v Mexico

Date: 02 July 2017

Venue: Otkrytie Arena

Portugal and Mexico will battle for the bronze medal in the FIFA Confederations Cup third and fourth play-off this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 14h00.

Portugal missed out on a chance to advance to the final, after they lost 3-0 on penalties to Chile on Wednesday evening.

Mexico, on the other hand, were well beaten as they were thumped 4-1 by world Champions, Germany on Thursday night.

Selecao will be without the services of top scorer and captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, who will miss the clash due to the birth of his twins.

These two nations met in the Group stages of the tournament, where they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Here's how they line up:

Portugal: Rui Patricio; Semedo, Pepe, Neto, Eliseu; Pizzi, Moutinho, Danilo, G. Martins; Nani, Andre Silva.

Mexico: Ochoa; Luis Reyes, Márquez, Moreno; Araujo, Guardado, Herrera, Layún; Vela, Hernandez, Peralta.
