Portugal felt the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo as they suffered a 0-2 shock defeat in a home friendly against the African side Cape Verde Islands.
Portugal, who lead their Euro-16 qualifying group, rested captain Ronaldo and one of their players got a red card in the match.
Odair Fortes gave Cape Verde the lead in the 37th minute, and Admilson Gege made it 2-0.
To add to their woes, Portugal’s Andre Pinto was sent off.
