ALL eyes will be on Portugal and Spain when they go toe-to-toe in the standout Nations League fixture of Group A2 – and it is not to be missed.
Cristiano Ronaldo captained his country to the first ever Nations League triumph in 2019.
And the Manchester United legend will be eager to do it once more despite being off the pace this season at club level.
