Gelson Martins: Touted as the future Cristiano Ronaldo, Gelson Martins has been giving sleepless nights to opposition defenders with his blistering runs on the wings for Portuguese giants Sporting CP. Already being scouted by Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea, Martins is definitely one to watch out for.
Andre Silva: Portugal seem to have finally found a striker who is technically proficient and seems to be a natural goalscorer. A first-team regular and first choice striker at one of Europe’s top clubs, Porto, Silva has had a blistering start to his international career having scored 4 goals in 5 international appearances.
