Portugal picks Liedson for World Cup qualifiers

Sporting forward Liedson was chosen for Portugal for the first time on Wednesday for vital World Cup qualifying matches against Denmark and Hungary.
Portugal, tied for third with Sweden in Europe's Group One, face Denmark on Sept. 5 and Hungary four days later in its bid to make the 2010 South Africa finals. The Portuguese have to beat Denmark and Hungary to stay in contention.
Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz said Brazilian-born but Portuguese nationalized Liedson will fit into the team well.
