Portugal will play a last preparation match in Lisbon against Estonia on June 8 before departure to Marcoussis the headquarters in France for Euro2016.

“We just need to believe in ourselves and believe that everything is possible and begin the competition with all our strengths to reach our objectives.” Nani added.
