A lot will depend on what time you fly back on Sunday and whether at time of flying you’ll still be in the 72 hour period, if not you will need a further test for coming back to Manchester. Some think it’s a 3 day period but I’m being a bit more cautious.
Lots of options quoted on here for test stations in Porto but being a lazy twat I’m doing an online one in my room on the sat morning (see previous page).
It is a three day period. It’s on the government website, which is good enough for me


Take a coronavirus test before you travel to England​

You must have proof of a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test to travel to England.

You must take a test even if:

You must take the test in the 3 days before the service on which you will arrive in England departs.

For example, if you travel directly to England on Friday, you must take the test on the Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

Like you, I've just been reading that advice and it definitely talks in 'days' not 'hours' which makes sense in that everybody knows flights are often delayed and so it's virtually impossible to be so specific. It's City, I think, that are saying tests should be taken after 1pm Thursday which seems to contradict the Gov guidance. I'm assuming there is no way to get a definitive answer to the question?

Same here. Booked a test for Thursday afternoon when the website said same day results. Now they have changed their policy due to the volume of tests to within 24 hours, I wanted to bring it forward but can't.

Definitive answer is from gov.uk website.

Yes I’ve seen that advice but there’s a more specific Government advice for fans going to the final, see page 4 of this topic which definitely says 72 hours, which tbh just seems common sense as saying 3 days could end up damn near 4 days depending on flight times.
Also I’ve got mate who’s a driver who goes regularly to the continent, he can’t afford to fuck up and he’s adamant it’s 72 hours.
For 39 quid it just isn’t worth the risk for me.
