Portugal and Scotland are in action as the UEFA Nations League returns on Thursday, while Wales, Spain and France are playing friendly games, with all games live on Sky Sports.

Portugal will be looking to make it two wins from two in Group A3 when they travel to Poland.

Cristiano Ronaldo will not be involved in the game as he has been omitted from the squad. The Juventus forward was rested for Portugal’s internationals in September and will not feature again amid rape allegations, which he strenuously denies.

Striker Robert Lewandowski is expected to win his 100th cap for Poland, who drew their first UEFA Nations League match 1-1 against Italy.

Scotland face a trip to Israel in Group C1 without Ryan Fraser or Leigh Griffiths.

Wales are in friendly action on Thursday as they face Spain at the Principality Stadium while France play Iceland.

France head coach Didier Deschamps has been singing the praises of 19-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe after he scored four times in Paris Saint-Germain’s 5-0 win over Lyon at the weekend.

“Kylian is doing some extraordinary things. What he can do at such a young age is not normal,” he said.

“You can’t put him in any category. A player like him only appears occasionally. I’m privileged because he’s French and he plays with us.

“There are a lot of Kylians, but only one Kylian Mbappe. He’s doing amazing things. What he has achieved until now is extraordinary.”
