2018 World Cup Portugal Squad & Lineups
As Fernando Santos became Portugal's national group mentor, he has made Portugal a very tough team. Although they have Ronaldo in their positions, the Portuguese still depend vigorously on their strong establishment at the back, which made them the surprise winner of EURO 2016 in Portugal. Portugal misses the central midfield; however, with Ronaldo, they generally have a possibility against anybody. Santos uses the traditional 4-4-2 framework with Ronaldo, Silva upftront whilst Bernardo Silva and Jao Mario assisting in an assault from the wings.
Portugal has a number of attacking players, notably the traditional winger players Goncalo Guedes and Andre Silva who hope to replace Quaresma and Nani in the near future. Andre Silva will probably start in the run-up with Nani, Ronaldo and Bernando Silva in the assault. While 2 of the 3 Jao Moutinho, William Carvallho, and Jao Mario should take over the focal midfield parts.
Must be Ronaldo, the record scorer for Portugal and make the difference when it really matters. The Portuguese framework is based on the strong barrier, and there are not many chances, and that is the place Ronaldo comes in who simply require that half the opportunity to score. Ronaldo has developed an exceptionally great organization with Andre Silva and their connection will be crucial in advance of Portugal's chances.
