BY foxsports • November 7, 2011

Striker Danny and defender Silvo are injured and have pulled out of the Portugal squad for the 2012 European Championship playoff against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Portuguese Football Federation said Monday that Atletico Madrid right-back Silvio has a groin strain, while Zenit St. Petersburg forward Danny has a right knee sprain.

Coach Paulo Bento replaced the pair with Malaga defender Eliseu and PAOK's Vieirinha.

The first-leg playoff is in Bosnia Nov. 11 with the return game in Lisbon Nov. 15.
