Southampton defender Cédric will be aiming to help Portugal book a place in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup today.

The European champions require just a point from their third and final group game against an already-eliminated New Zealand (4pm BST) in order to progress to the last four.

Portugal beat host nation Russia 1-0 in their most recent game, putting one foot into the semi-finals after their opening 2-2 draw with Mexico.

Cédric has started both matches so far and will hope to help Fernando Santos’s team extend their stay at the tournament today, ahead of the semis, which take place next Wednesday and Thursday.
