Vidal offers his semi-final verdict

New Zealand v Portugal Pepe urges Selecao to be faithful to their style

Just seven months after its launch Dugout, which brings clubs and players together on one platform as content creators while passing on the ad revenue, has expanded its list of contributing teams from 27 at launch to 51.

It appears that more global teams are expected to be announced in the coming weeks with Richardson confirming that Dugout was "in conversation with a number of other federations".

The Portugal captain scored twice and registered one assist in three group games at the Confederations Cup to help his side reach the semi-finals.

Nani is another experienced forward who has been invaluable for Portugal since joining the squad after the 2006 World Cup.

"Portugal have to play as a team as well, even if they have a player like Ronaldo".

Germany take on Mexico on Thursday in the other semi-final ahead of the competition's conclusion on Sunday.

Chile appeared quiet against the Socceroos in their final group match, but they produced a solid second-half performance to qualify. “Having an extra day of rest at this stage of the tournament, and after the great effort that weve been making, favours the opponent.”.

Chile play a very aggressive style, with high pressing and relentless attack.

Pizzi admits he will be a major threat but he has confidence in his players to make their own headlines.

Chile and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Charles Aranguiz left the game at halftime with an unspecified injury after a hard tackle by Tim Cahill, and Pizzi said he was "in a lot of pain".

"We're obviously at a disadvantage, " Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said. "We are going to try to be better tomorrow".

Arturo Vidal did not call Cristiano Ronaldo a "smart ass", with a translation error leading to incorrect headlines this week, Chile's press secretary says.

Portugal have been quite wonderful so far in the tournament having scored seven goals thus far with their poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo having scored twice.

Portugal swiftly doubled their lead when Eliseu's risky low cross from the left was forced home by Silva, although there was brief concern for the new Manchester City signing as he landed awkwardly on his ankle.

He would tweet later, "Everything if fine with my ankle", but didn't train on Monday.
