Erik Lamela came on in the 61st minute as Argentina slipped to a 1-0 friendly defeat against Portugal at Old Trafford. Federico Fazio, who started the friendly win against Croatia last week, was an unused substitute this time.

Hugo Lloris also remained on the bench as France beat Sweden 1-0 in a friendly at Marseille. Steve Mandanda, who plays for Marseille, took over in goal. Hugo, captain of his national team, played 90 minutes in Friday's draw against Albania.
