Portugal forward Danny and
defender Silvio have been ruled out of the two-legged Euro 2012
play-off against Bosnia due to injury, the Portuguese football
federation said on Monday.
As a result, Malaga defender Eliseu and PAOK Salonika
midfielder Vieirinha were called up by coach Paulo Bento to join
Zenit St Petersburg's Danny had a knee injury while Silvio
was considered "unfit for competition," according to a
Portuguese football federation statement.
"I was checked and will be leaving the training camp now due
to a groin pain. I do so with regret; no player likes to miss
out on such decisive matches as these two but I think we will
manage to qualify," Silvio told journalists.
Portugal play the first match in Zenica on Friday and host
the Bosnians four days later in Lisbon.
