Moutinho had not been in practice on Friday due to illness and lost the session on Saturday, just two days of the duel against the Persian team in Saransk.
The 31-year-old was a starter in the two games played by Portugal in this World Cup , the 3-3 draw against Spain and the 1-0 victory over Morocco . He provided the ball that allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to score against the North Africans.
For his part, left-back Raphael Guerreiro returned to training with the rest of the team after failing to do so on Friday due to a physical problem.
“We have seen the games (of Iran ) and other games of this World and we are clear that there are no easy matches,” said defender Ruben Dias.
“We will have to be prepared for anything, all the teams have ambition and we know very well that it will be a difficult match for both, this is the World Cup, sometimes you do not start well but as you play you gain more confidence in yourself and you start to improve, “he said.
Portugal , with 4 points, is in a good position to qualify for the round of 16, but needs to score against Iran . A defeat could send Cristiano Ronaldo’steam home.
