Marco Caneira
Club:Benfica
Position:Defender

Back with Benfica on a two-year loan deal from Inter Milan, Marco Caneira only secured his place at the last moment.

A former Portuguese Under-21 captain, the 22-year-old right-back has plenty of experience for his age.

Pacey and intelligent, he is provides effective cover and impressed when he came into the side for the friendly with Finland in March.

Unlikely to start a game, but just to be in the Far East will add to his development as a player - with Inter keen for him to get as much experience as he can.
