Pepe to miss Nations final with shoulder injury

The FC crew discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's impactful return for Portugal after he netted three goals to send them to the UEFA Nations League final.
Cristiano Ronaldo came to the rescue with a treble for Portugal after a spirited Switzerland had equalized following a lengthy VAR inquest.

Portugal defender Pepe will miss the Nations League final because of a shoulder injury.

The Portuguese fooball federation says Pepe will not play Sunday's final against the Netherlands after tests showed he fractured his right shoulder in the semifinal against Switzerland on Wednesday.

Pepe had to be substituted about 15 minutes into the second half of Portugal's 3-1 win at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto.

For the final, Portugal coach Fernando Santos is expected to replace the 36-year-old veteran central defender with either Ruben Dias or Jose Fonte.
