FT: Portugal 0-0 Spain. One of the better goalless draws, with the crossbar saving Spain twice. Ronaldo's run of successive games with a goal comes to an end. On to the Nations League for this pair. Thanks for joining us. Goodnight.

MISS! Right at the last! Felix should score, but gets it all wrong, somehow missing the ball completely at the far post!

Jota carries the attack to Spain, has a go with his right foot, but that is blocked.

Here is Jota, as he replaces Trincao.

Liverpool's Diogo Jota is coming on shortly. Can he be the match winner?

CROSSBAR AND DOWN ON THE LINE AGAIN! Ronaldo with the incredible pass this time, Sanches arrives right on cue, shoots for goal first time but, again, the ball hits the underside of the crossbar and comes down on the line!

65' 

Spain have scored 17 goals in their last four matches, but they are not really testing Patricio here.

63' 

Portugal still very much in the ascendancy here.

A huge moment for the Wolves man.

55' 

Normal service is resumed as Olmo has a shot at goal which is well wide.

53'

CROSSBAR! Of course, it is Ronaldo. The skipper shifts the ball onto his right foot, then his left, unleashes a thunderous strike, it beats Kepa all ends up, but hits the crossbar, bounces down on the goal line and away.

51' 

Bernardo Silva, on at half time, has improved Portugal, tenfold here.

First yellow card of the game is for Sergio Reguilon, for persistent fouling.

42'

CHANCE! Probably the chance of the half falls for Guerrero, after a lovely flick from Trincao, but full-back fires well over from eight yards. Got right underneath the bouncing ball.

40' 

Barcelona's Trincao, who we have not seen much from, does well to clip a pass into Sanches, but again the move breaks down.

38' 

Once again, it is that man Olmo with a shot from long range, but Man City's man Joao Cancelo is across to make the block.

36' 

Canales cuts onto this right foot, but his shot at goal is blocked.

34' 

Sanches tries to feed the ball through for Andre Silva, but he gets too much on it.

32' 

Portugal have really upped their tempo now and are starting to take the game to Spain.

30' 

Two corners for Portugal cause problems, but Spain deal with them.

28' 

Portugal are at least pressing a little higher, forcing Spain back into their own half.

- 

They have been very much second best here.

26' 

Finally Ronaldo gets on the ball, gives it to Renato Sanches who has a crack, but that is always rising.

24' 

Like Groundhog Day this as Olmo again has an effort, and again it is an easy save for Patricio.

22' 

Portugal have at least settled into this. Still not one single attack.

20' 

Rodrigo does well to get across Pepe to flick for goal, but the experienced Pepe makes the block, before Gerardo goes for the rebound, but fires into the side-netting.

18' 

Another shot at goal from Spain! Rodrigo again, and again a comfortable save for Patricio.

16' 

It is nice to see some fans in the stadium tonight, and shows it can be done, socially distanced.

14' 

Olmo again with the effort, but that is straight at Patricio.

12' 

Leeds striker Rodrigo cuts onto his left foot, tries to curl one for the far corner, but that is always heading wide.

10' 

Spain still camped in the Portugal half. Very impressive start from the visitors.

8' 

Sergio Canales gets to the byline, drills it across, but Raphael Guerrero does well to make the block. One-way traffic here.

6' 

Spain still dominating here. Portugal cannot get out of their own half!

4' 

Spain remain on the front foot Dani Ceballos threads it through for Olmo who, from a very tight angle, fizzes one across the face of goal.

2'

SAVE! Great start from the visitors, Dani Olma feeds the ball across for Gerardo Moreno, who bundles his way to the edge of the six-yard box, pokes for goal, but Rui Patricio makes a smart block.

More of this, please.

KEPA OVER DE GEA, RONALDO STARTS: There's no rest for the Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo, who starts tonight. There are THREE Wolves players in the Portugal line-up. There's another Wolves player who could be involved tonight, and that is Adama Traore, off the bench for Spain. Kepa Arrizabalaga, despite being left out in the cold by Chelsea, starts over David de Gea in goal for Spain, who have two Leeds players in their starting XI.
