Cédric is set for action with Portugal today as they continue their Confederations Cup campaign against Russia.

The reigning European Champions face the tournament hosts at the Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow at 16:00 BST.

Cédric netted his first international goal in their last outing to put Fernando Santos’ men 2-1 ahead, but it was not enough as Hector Moreno’s late header denied them all three points.

Portugal and Mexico are tied in second place of Group A, with Russia top of the table after their 2-0 success over New Zealand.
