Varela replaces Danny in Portugal squad

Porto winger Silvestre Varela has replaced Zenit Saint Petersburg playmaker Danny in Portugal's squad for their Euro 2012 qualifiers against Iceland on October 7 and Denmark on October 11.

"Due to the personal reasons provided by Danny for his absence from the national team's training camp... national coach Paulo Bento has called up Porto player Silvestre Varela," announced the Portuguese footbal federation in a statement published on Sunday evening, without providing further details.

Portugal are currently top of Euro 2012 qualifying Group H on goal difference from Denmark and Norway.
