My team is Italy, but I think this Portugal team will go deep into the Euro tournament. The arrival of Nani will open up Ronaldo BUT...I'm not a Quaresma fan. go portugal!
Very thin

I think we may in trouble with personnel if we make it to the 2014 WC. Our younger guys need to get some serious experience within the next two years.
The numbers are perfect.

Nelson Oliveira in 11 is perfect! He has always worn 7 or 11 for Portugal U20 and U21's respectively. And considering that Ronaldo is undisputed holder of the 7 , and that Nelson Oliveira is a striker I'm happy that he got his 11. Its a perfect number for a dynamic striker. He'll be comfortable in it. He's his own man and 11 is perfect for him!

I agree David. The #10 should be reserved for an attacking midfielder - looks awful on Quaresma. I believe the #'s must be from 1-23.. rather him wear #19. Varela should get #11 and Nelson maybe #21? That number belongs to Nuno Gomes though.. such a legend they should retire it.

Under Bento, who is calm, more tactical and mature, Portugal was in form.
I am confident that we can go further in the tournament, when the team acts more as one and be more psychologically tough.
Forca Portugal ! Give my wholehearted support !
