The Portuguese Men’s National Team is considered one of the favorites to win the World Cup in Qatar for a variety of reasons, including squad depth and competition history.
The Seleço came in third place at the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England. Fernando Santos’ Portuguese team features some of Europe’s best players, including Joo Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Goncalo Ramos, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Nigeria, on the other hand, failed to qualify for the World as they fell to the Black Stars of Ghana in the African World Cup playoffs. The Super Eagles head coach, José Peseiro, is expected to sharpen his team for upcoming AFCON qualifiers next year.
