THE BOSS FERNANDO SANTOS
Has hardly put a foot wrong since taking over in 2014, winning Euro 2016.
THE STAR CRISTIANO RONALDO
Portugal’s captain, talisman and all-time top scorer is motivated by a desire to keep proving he is the best in the world. With that drive, Ronaldo will drag Portugal as far as he possibly can.
THE PROSPECT BERNARDO SILVA
As one of Manchester City’s supporting cast, the 23-year-old winger will be fresh and raring to go.
Santos’ team are welldrilled and confident, remaining unbeaten at Euro 2016 and winning nine of their 10 qualifiers.
They have three ageing centre backs. Bruno Alves, Pepe and Jose Fonte have an average age of 35.
