Portuguese midfielder Danilo Pereira speaks of a challenging match against Slovenia, acknowledging the skill of their attackers alongside Jan Oblak.

Portugal's midfielder, Danilo Pereira, anticipates a tough game and, in addition to Jan Oblak, highlights the Slovenian strikers' capabilities. Danilo Pereira, a player for French champions PSG, shared insights before Portugal's visit to Ljubljana, revealing his team's familiarity with the opponent. Despite focusing mainly on their own preparation, Pereira stressed that Portugal would not underestimate the match, acknowledging Slovenia's qualities beyond the well-known goalkeeper Jan Oblak in Portugal.

"Underestimating the opponent is dangerous. Of course, Slovenia isn't as renowned as Spain or France, but I don't see it that way. I know Slovenia has a strong team, their forwards play well both in space and with the ball at their feet. The team plays compactly, so we're aware this won't be an easy match. Plus, playing away is never simple," said the 32-year-old defensive midfielder.

Danilo Pereira, who has played 70 matches for Portugal and was a part of the European Championship-winning team, missed the 2018 World Cup in Russia due to an injury.

His club career began at Benfica, although he never played for the first team, making his way through Parma, Aris, Roda, before returning to Portugal. He played for Maritimo and Porto before transferring to PSG in 2020.
