Lopes has been the long time Portugal number two keeper for Portugal but he may just be on the outside looking in when the World Cup comes around this time and it is not for a drop in form but a rise in the form of others.

Silva will only be at the World Cup if the nation suffers a series of injuries to those keepers in front of him, a sound keeper who would not look out of place in the squad if he is needed.
