Portugal National Football Team team info
See this great team in action and get your Portugal national team tickets before they sell out! With the team having recently won the 2016 European Championship, Portugal are currently enjoying the fruits of their labour, and it should come as no surprise that the country has produced some of the best football players of recent times! Take, for example, Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe, (both of whom proved crucial in their European Championship campaign) Ricardo Carvalho, Tiago Pinto, Adrien Silva and Paulo Oliveira. Portugal, like the country that shares their language Brazil, are known for playing free-flowing attacking football, and with a seemingly endless supply of young talent like Bernardo Silva, André Silva and Gonçalo Guedes, this shows no sign of abating.
Portugal in the Football World Cup
Cristiano Ronaldo, captain and all-time leading scorer for Portugal, has led his team to the Football World Cup finals once again. After the Portuguese victory at the European Championships, could 2018 be the year that Portugal finally lift the most coveted trophy in world football in 2018? The team has reached the semi-finals twice in their history, in 1966 inspired by the legendary Eusebio, and again in 2006 where they were knocked out by France. With the hugely-experienced coach Fernando Santos at the helm, and a dazzling array of attacking talent, the Portugal National Football Team is definitely one of the sides to watch.

Portugal National Football Team legendary players
Where to start when talking about some of the extraordinary players that have donned the Portuguese shirt? Until Cristiano Ronaldo decides to hang up his boots, Eusebio will always be seen as the best player that Portugal has produced. The legendary striker broke all types of scoring records for Portugal and especially during his long spell at Benfica. Another star player is Luis Figo, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation. Figo is also famous for having played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, something the Barcelona fans were outraged about when he moved to the Madrid side for a then-record 60€ million. Once Cristiano retires we will add him to this famed list but, until then, savour the moment of watching one of the Portugal's greatest generations and buy Portugal National Football Team tickets today.
