Germany take on Portugal on Monday 16th June, 2014, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV1.

Of all the big matches in the group stages this might be the most anticipated, even given the amount of hype around the Brazil game, but Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t ready for this match he will not only be unable to fully trouble and challenge his opponents but also could potential exacerbate his injury further with the next two matches in mind.

Germany have no injury worries now Lahm and Neuer are confirmed as fit and ready, and if they get a good win it will see them installed as favourites in all probability, and with some considerable justification.

Germany v Portugal is LIVE on ITV1.
