FIFA World Cup 2022: Portugal Most Promising Players to Check Out This Season

Get information on the list of the most promising players for the FIFA World Cup 2022. Read to know everything about the main players.

Champions from last year for the FIFA World Cup of Portugal are enlisted with analysis. It is predicted that Fernando Santos’ Portugal team would be a contender despite their challenging draw because they are one of the most intriguing teams in the tournament. As a member of a group that also includes France, Germany, and Hungary, Portugal has been dealt an intricate hand. In anticipation of their season opener against Hungary, we look at the top players, captains, and coaches of the Portugal national football team.

Joao Cancelo

Position: Back


Age: 28

Portugal’s head coach, Fernando Santos, praised Cancelo as “the best full-back in the world right now,” highlighting the player’s prominence and significance to his squad. Cancelo played 694 minutes throughout his country’s qualification campaign for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 TM, fewer than all but two of his teammates who are also included on this list.

Cancelo has played on both sides of Manchester City’s defence and in the middle, so it would be interesting to hear Santos’ opinion on where he fits best. Pep Guardiola has seen Cancelo’s adaptability and plans to use it to his advantage.

Cancelo is a right-footed player who has significantly grown since arriving at City from Benfica by way of Valencia, Inter Milan, and Juventus. His club coach commented, “Joao loves playing football – morning, noon, and night, day in and day out.” They all find him hilarious in the locker room.

Ruben Dias

Position: Center-Back

Age: 25

During Ruben Dias’s stellar season with Manchester City, he has had an impact similar to that of Virgil van Dijk in Pep Guardiola’s system. Dias will be relied upon once more as the team’s defensive anchor as they attempt to stifle the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Muller, and others in a challenging group. The Euro 2020 tournament could be the beginning of Dias’ meteoric rise to fame in Portugal.

Bruno Fernandes

Position: Center-Back

Age: 25

Bruno Fernandes, a valuable asset in fantasy football leagues, will significantly contribute to Portugal at the 2018 Euro tournament. At the massive event, the midfielder hopes to repeat his success from last season at Manchester United. He has received widespread acclaim ever since his transfer to Old Trafford. Fernandes hopes to contribute to his team’s success by contributing to the assist’s column with superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Diogo Jota.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Position: Forward

Age: 37

Portugal’s offensive efforts will revolve around Cristiano Ronaldo, who is making his fifth appearance at the European Championship. The Portuguese captain is attempting to break several scoring records, and if he scores just once more, he will become the tournament’s all-time leading scorer. When he scores six times, he will surpass Ali Daei of Iran as the all-time leader in international goals scored. Juventus should have little trouble scoring with Ronaldo as their primary scorer and Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva as their direct assist men in what may be Ronaldo’s final Euro participation.

Bernardo Silva

Position: Midfielder

Age: 28

Bernardo Silva, one of the best players on the Portuguese national team, is entering an uncertain summer amid reports that he may be leaving Manchester City. The Portuguese playmaker is a vital asset for both Pep Guardiola and Fernando Santos due to his versatility as a player. With clubs like Barcelona, PSG, and Atletico Madrid all reportedly interested in signing Silva, the forward will be looking to make an impression at the Euros.
