The player in question? Diogo Jota.

As per the latest word stemming from Portugal, attacker Jota has emerged as a doubt to feature in his country’s friendly meeting with Qatar on Saturday night.

This comes with the former Wolves man having been forced to sit out training throughout the week, owing to ‘muscle problems’:
