FC Porto have recalled Hélder Barbosa from his loan spell at A. Académica de Coimbra to cover for Tarik Sektioui's absence at the African Cup of Nations.

Schalke chance
The 20-year-old Portuguese winger, who has made 23 appearances for Liga side Académica during the last two seasons, has been brought back to help soften the blow of Moroccan international Sektioui's departure. Barbosa took part in his first training session at Porto today and could yet be in the squad to face FC Schalke 04 in the UEFA Champions League first knockout round. The first leg will take place in Germany on 19 February with the return scheduled for 5 March at the Estádio do Dragão.
