Bert van Marwijk's team still have a chance of making the quarter finals despite losing against Denmark and Germany in the first two games. But they will have to beat Portugal by two goals and hope Germany beat Denmark.
Here are the probable line ups:
Rui Patricio - Pereira, Pepe, Alves, Coentrao - Meireles, Veloso, Moutinho - Nani, Postiga, Ronaldo
Stekelenburg - Van der Wiel, Heitinga, Mathijsen, Willems - N De Jong, Van Bommel - Van Persie, Sneijder, Robben - Huntelaar
Portugal have a clean bill of health for Sunday's clash with Netherlands at Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv. That said, coach Paulo Bento could field the same team that beat Denmark 3-2 on Wednesday, with Helder Postiga keeping his place in attack ahead of Hugo Almeida and Nelson Oliveira.
Netherlands have no injury concerns either but coach Bert van Marwijk might try to field a more attacking squad given the circumstances. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could be given a starting berth alongside Robin van Persie in attack, with attacking midfielder Ibrahim Afellay the probable one to make way.
Dirk Kuyt is also considered for a place in the starting line up instead of Arjen Robben who had a rather impolite reaction after being substituted during the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Germany.
Here are the match odds from Bet365:
Portugal - 9/5
Draw - 5/2
Netherlands - 6/4
