MILLWALL have confirmed that they will face Portuguese opposition in a pre-season friendly at The Den on Saturday, August 1.

CD Tondela won the Segunda Liga last season to secure promotion to the Primeira Liga for the first time in their 82-year history.

The game is expected to complete the Lions’ pre-season friendly schedule.

It is the third season in a row that Millwall will face Iberian opposition after 1-0 wins over Spain’s Mallorca last year and Rayo Vallecano the year before.

It is set to be the only warm-up game at The Den after fixtures away at Bromley (July 14), AFC Wimbledon (July 18) and Stevenage (July 25).

The match against the Portuguese minnows will kick off at 2pm and ticket details will be announced at a later stage.

    The club's pulling out all the stops with this one - the mighty CD Tondela. I wonder if BT Sport might be interested in televising it?

          @dave666: I've just Googled CD Tondela - they turned professional in 2012/13, have a ground capacity of 3,000 and are from a town of 28,000 people. Hardly exactly Sporting Lisbon are they? This is the sort of outfit who'd struggle to get into our Conference league.

    I like this fixture - play against a team that knows how to get promoted as they just did it.

    The Portuguese league is certainly not the best in Europe but any team who plays in their first division is decent enough and even if no-one has heard of them before today, calling them minnows is a bit strong. If they are minnows what the **** are we?

      @bojim: Well said. These 'minnows' will be taking on Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Porto next season whilst arguably our 'big' games are Sheffield United, Gillingham and Southend.

    I think the reason we are playing teams like this in friendlys is to build confidence and bed in a new team. I could be wrong
