The lineups for the third Group A game of the 2017 Confederations Cup, Russia vs Portugal, have been announced, with both teams making a notable number of changes for the clash at Otkrytiye Arena on Wednesday.

Host Russia have drafted in former Chelsea full-back Yury Zhirkhov back into the starting lineup but it is the Iberians changes that are more significant.

Youngsters Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva have come in place of experienced duo Ricardo Quaresma and Nani, while veteran Bruno Alves replaces Jose Fonte in the centre of defence.

Russia are topping the group after beating New Zealand 2-0 in the opener, while Portugal were held to a 2-2 draw by Mexico in their first game, which makes Wednesday's tie a must-win for Cristiano Ronaldo and co.

The match starts at 8.30 PM IST.

Russia: Igor Akinfeev (captain), Roman Shishkin, Viktor Vasin, George Dhzikya, Denis Glushakov, Fedor Smolov, Fedor Kudriashov, Aleksandr Golovin, Yuri Zhirkhov, Alexander Samedov, Dimitry Kombarov

Portugal: Rui Patricio, Bruno Alves, Pepe, Raphal Guerreiro, Cristiano Ronaldo (c), Andre Silva, Bernardo Silva, William, Andre Gomes, Cedric, Adrien Silva
