Portugal replace Martins with Viana
Portugal have called up Hugo Viana to their UEFA EURO 2012 squad after Carlos Martins was ruled out through injury, the Portuguese football association announced on their website.
Benfica midfielder Martins, who spent last season on loan at Granada, was last week included in coach Paulo Bento's 23-man for Poland and Ukraine but a leg injury means he will not now be available for the tournament.
Taking his place is 29-year-old Braga playmaker Viana, who won the most recent of his 26 caps in 2007.
Portugal are in Group B at the European Championships alongside the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany, who they face in their opening match on 9 June.
