Portugal striker Almeida out of Finland tie
LISBON, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Striker Hugo Almeida will miss Portugal's final Euro 2008 qualifier against Finland on Wednesday through injury.
Benfica's Nuno Gomes is to replace Almeida in the team, the Portuguese Soccer Federation said on its official website on Monday.
Almeida, who plays for Werder Bremen, scored the only goal in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Armenia but also injured his right thigh in the game.
Portugal host Finland in Porto knowing a draw will take them through to the finals.
Finland or Serbia, who play Kazakhstan on Saturday, can qualify alongside Group A leaders Poland if Portugal slip up.
