Portugal National Football Team Live Streaming

Portugal National Football Team is one of the dark horses in this year’s FIFA World Cup. Yes, they were the Euro 2016 winners. But that was 6 years ago now. The experienced group of players who were few is now the supporting cast of the next generation of talented World-beaters. However, some of the players like Renato Sanchez, and Joao Cancelo in 2016 was just in their budding phase and trying to make their mark in the game. Cut to now. They are well-established stars that have a host of European clubs vying for their signature.

And, of course, they have the best goal scorer and one of the greatest players to play the game in their arsenal. Yes, we are talking about Cristiano Ronaldo. Regardless, the Ronaldo factor cannot be underestimated. The Portuguese had delivered time and again for Portugal National Team when it mattered. But this time, with players like Diogo Jota and Andre Silva coming of age, the pressure of Goalscoring can be eased on Ronaldo a bit. Portugal National Football Team is not a one-man team anymore, but can they win the big one in Qatar?

Portugal national football team: Squad overview

The Portugal football team in 2016 mainly had trusted veterans who were in the twilight of their careers and a few breakout players like Renato Sanchez, who was only 18 years old. Therefore, the game plan was based on holding a low defensive block and counter-attacking when the chance arrived relying on counterattacks which worked very successfully for Portugal in 2016. The vets in the team were experts on their job – Ricardo Carvalho the legendary defender, although not the paciest, his defensive positioning and organization made him a very important member of the squad. So was Pepe, Jose Fonte, and Bruno Alves’s contribution to the games.

Nani and Ricardo Quaresma were still exciting outlets for the Portugal team then. Cut forward to today. Portugal is stacked in every area of the field. However, each player is not only a starter at their club but fundamental to how their team plays.

Portugal team: Defense

Pepe is an evergreen presence for Portugal, just like Cristiano Ronaldo. The longevity of the defender has to be commended. He has been a faithful servant to Fernando Santos since he became the Manager of Portugal. The defender, along with Raphael Guerreiro, Danilo, and Jose Fonte, is the survivors from the 2016 squad, apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, of course.

Coming to the next generation, Ruben Dias has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world under Pep Guardiola in Manchester City, along with Joao Cancelo. The former has shown incredible adaptability by playing across many positions on the pitch. Jose Sa has been tremendous for the Wolves this season and has been one of the leaders in clean sheets in the English Premier League. Nuno Mendez and Danilo have impressed with PSG and have made their loan deals permanent while also securing the Ligue 1. As things stand, this defence, on paper, is one of the best and scoring against them will take a seemingly excellent effort.

Portugal national football team: Midfield 

The Portugal National Football Team Players constitute the best midfielders in the world. And, coming into this world cup, they are well-equipped in the midfield department. The midfield contingent will feature the likes of Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United, Bernardo Silva of the Premier Champions Manchester City, and Ruben Neves. Joao Moutinho and William Carvalho are expected o be providing a veteran presence. Renato Sanchez, a Ligue 1 champion last season after a disappointing spell in Bayern Munich, has come of age as a midfielder and a host of European clubs are interested in signing him.

Portugal national football team: Attack

The potency of Portugal’s attacking options is very high. Diogo Jota, Andre Silva, and Gonzalo Guedes have had good seasons with their clubs and scored a good number of goals. So the attack looks good ahead of the World Cup. And, of course, the presence and reliability of Cristiano Ronaldo will be massive for Portugal.

Portugal national football team players to watch out for

Joao Cancelo

Arguably, the most versatile player in the world right now. Cancelo has the adaptability to play anywhere on the pitch and perform at the same excellent level required of him. Under Pep Guardiola, he has performed exceptionally and has collected 2 premier league medals. Can he do it for Portugal with the same consistency under a different system for Santos?

Bruno Fernandes

Since signing for Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation. In his first season, he won the Player of the season for Manchester United, considering he only joined them in January. Moreover, they were also able to get to the Final of the Europa League but lost out in the penalties against Villareal. Manchester United has had a disappointing campaign this close season, finishing in the 6th position in the league, and Bruno Fernandes cannot replicate the form before. But there is no doubt about the quality that this midfielder has. And it will be interesting to see how he mentally adapts after such a season in Qatar.

Renato Sanchez

He was only 18 when he was a prominent figure in the Euro 2016 campaign for Portugal’s National Football Team. After which, he signed with Bayern Munich and went off the radar a bit, not playing much and going for a loan move to the premier league with Swansea City. Now playing for Ligue 1 club Lille, he is one of the leading men and has been instrumental in bringing the French championship to Lille from the mighty hands of PSG. Moreover, this offseason, many top European clubs are looking to sign him. Will that be a distraction or add to his confidence in Qatar?

Cristiano Ronaldo

This list will not be complete without adding the leading man. This has the potential to be CR7’s last World Cup. Although, it is never set in stone just yet, as we have learned time and again to never count Cristiano Ronaldo out. Ronaldo has been the only shining light for Manchester United this season with his goals, and the Portuguese will look to take that form with him to Qatar. Therefore, his impact is inevitable.
