Portugal in their arsenal has the likes of Luis Figo, the captain who has apart from his passing has a whole bag of tricks up his sleeve to baffle any opposition. Also spearheading the attack would be Christiano Ronaldo, Manchester United forward who would look to make a few inroads into the French defence.
The Portugal team’s defence would be bolstered with the presence of Miguel and Valente who have kept the oppositions at bay till now. Deco and Tiago in the midfield would look to set up their forwards with some good scoring opportunities. With the acumen of coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, Portugal would be a team to reckon.
The men in blue would have their task cut out against Portugal. Comprising of a mix of experienced campaigners and would class talent, the team on any day can upset its opposition.
