Southampton defender Cédric is today set to begin a busy summer with his country, as Portugal host Cyprus in a friendly.

The European champions welcome their opponents to Estoril for this afternoon’s game (4pm BST), which is their final one before a host of competitive action in the coming weeks.

Portugal visit Latvia on Friday 9th June for an important World Cup qualifier.

At the halfway stage of qualifying, they sit second in Group B, three points behind leaders Switzerland, having taken ten points from their opening five games.

After that’s out of the way, Cédric and his international teammates then jet off to Russia for the FIFA Confederations Cup.

The prelude to next summer’s World Cup finals sees Portugal grouped with Mexico, Russia and New Zealand, with their participation beginning on Sunday 18th June.

Germany, Australia, Chile and Cameroon are the other nations competing in this year’s tournament.
