Andy King and James Collins were brought into the Wales starting line-up against a Portugal side robbed of key defender Pepe through injury.

The Leicester midfielder and West Ham defender replaced the suspended Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies in Wednesday's Euro 2016 semi-final in Lyon.

Real Madrid defender Pepe failed to overcome a thigh complaint so was replaced by Bruno Alves, while Raphael Guerreiro and Danilo also came into the Portuguese line-up.

Wales starting line-up to face Portugal: Hennessey, Gunter, Chester, Williams (c), Collins, Taylor, Allen, Ledley, King, Bale, Robson-Kanu.
