Portugal made its entry on the big stage at the 1966 World Cup. The team made it all the way to semi-final where it lost in a closely fought game to England. Their opponents went on to become world champions. This was followed by low performance phase as Portugal was not able to qualify for the World Cup. Even when they did it make it in 1986 and 2002, they lost in the early rounds.
However, the 2006 edition of the World Cup breathed new life in to the hearts of the fans. Portugal had a group of players that were named as the 'Golden Generation.' These included the legendary Luis Figo who was the captain and the most capped player. Other superstars of the side were Sergio Conceicao, Fernando Cuoto and Pauleta. This was the same group of players who had won the U-20 World Cup in 1989 and 1991.That World Cup also saw the emergence of a new star. The team coached by Luiz Felipe Scolari lost to the eventual champion Germany in the semi-final.
Over the years, Portugal has produced many famous players who have gone on to make a name for themselves. These include the exceptionally talented mid fielder Deco and the Manchester United winger, Nani. Some of the more famous ones include Eusebio, Ricardo Carvalho, Ricardo Quaresma, Rui Costa. Joao Moutinho and Raul Meireles.
There are many expectations from 2014's team as it is led by the reigning Player of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo. Having broken almost all the records for his club Real Madrid, the winger is in phenomenal form. He is the leading goal scorer of the side with 49 goals. These days Ronaldo is constantly being compared to his Barcelona rival, Lionel Messi. There is no denying the fact that winning the World Cup for his country would go a long way in settling the argument once and for all in his favor. He would then be rightly discussed in the same breath as the legends Maradona and Pele. Do not miss the chance to see this determined team in action; buy Portugal tickets now.
