A-Z of the stars of the Portuguese game

For a small nation of around ten million inhabitants, Portugal has produced far more than its fair share of the world's greatest players over recent years, as exemplified by the healthy quota of Portuguese players scattered across many of Europe's elite clubs.

In our Player Profile section read detailed career profiles of the major players of the Portuguese game. In addition to Portugal's top footballers, find out more about the biggest foreign stars playing in the Liga Sagres.

Players are listed at the bottom of the page in alphabetical order of their surname or the name they commonly go by. Alternatively use the Quick Links table. Keep tabs on this page as more profiles shall be added throughout the coming months.
