The match will be the third played in the heat and humidity at the 40,000-seat Arena da Amazonia in Manaus, the most exotic of the 12 World Cup venues.

Moths and mosquitoes circled when the Americans took the field for practice Saturday evening at the stadium, built in a remote area of the rainforest.

Both sides say they are prepared.

“Everybody can feel the difficulty that we and the United States will have tomorrow. Very high humidity,” Meireles said. “That is a complicating factor, but it’s complicated for both teams.”

Whether it’s the weather, the injuries or anything else, the certainty for Portugal is the need for victory on Sunday.

“Either we win,” Bento said, “or we start packing our bags.”
