Santos apologized Djalo for forgetting him on the bench

Last night, Portugal managed to get victory against the Czech Republic, but this victory was affected by the strange mistake of the head coach of this team.


manager Fernando Santos apologized for forgetting that Lille defender

Tiago Djalo

was on the bench for the match against the

Czech Republic


During last night's match, Danilo was replaced by Joao Mario and Joao Palhinha moved from midfield to defense. Santos claimed that he should have used Dejalo in the defensive line, but completely forgot that the 22-year-old defender was on the bench.

He said:

“I forgot that I had Tiago Djalo on the bench, I apologize to Tiago Djalo. Djalo should have entered at that moment, I have full confidence in Djalo, but as Joao Mario was ready to come on, what came through mind at the moment was to move Palhinha to central defence.”

Portugal managed to win 4-1 against the Czech Republic last night and now need only one point to advance to next year's finals. Santos's words may cause problems in his team's dressing room, and it remains to be seen what will happen to Seleção in the two months before the World Cup.
