Left-handed midfielder benefits from many absentees in the selections. Not being able to count on Hjulmand, Morita and Essugo in the coming days, Rúben Amorim will have the opportunity to tactically work on some aspects of the player who even started the season in the starting line-up.
Daniel Bragança is an essential stone in Sporting’s upcoming training sessions. Rúben Amorim will take advantage of the absence of several midfielders to work directly with the left-hander on some aspects of his game, in order to ensure that he can be in the best conditions for the immediate future.
Sporting plays Moreirense on the 17th and it is expected that all internationals will be in a position to advance to the eleven. Even so, Bragança is the only player available at the moment in Alcochete to line up as a more defensive midfielder: Essugo is in the under-21s and will play a game on the 12th in Belarus, Morita also closes his participation for Japan on the 12th, which is less of a concern for hold both games on European soil. Hjulmand should even be the first to arrive for having the last game for Denmark against Finland, on the 10th.
Thus, Bragança will fight from today, on the way back to training, to be able to regain ownership. Amorim has often given priority to players who remain in Alcochete to train, but as a matter of fatigue, which at this stage of the season has not yet arisen.
The left-hander was in the starting line-up in the first game of the season, against Vizela, regaining his place in the main team after a year of ordeal due to the serious injury he suffered in his right knee in July 2022. He suffered a shock that left him sidelined for the second meeting, but he added minutes again with Famalicão and Braga.
