Portugal Euro 2020 Qualifiers

Portugal did not gain automatic qualification despite winning the 2016 European championship. UEFA set a new rule system where the final 24 teams get selected on the basis of qualification and playoffs. 12 host nations were allowed a chance to qualify as group winners and runners-up. So, a maximum of two were placed in each group – Azerbaijan, Denmark, England, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Spain.

Overall, 20 teams were picked from the qualifiers, Portugal being one of them and the rest four from the new qualifying playoffs system. Portugal were drawn into a difficult group but were also disappointing in the qualifiers. They finished second behind Ukraine and only 3 points above Serbia. Luxembourg and Lithuania were no match for the top three.

Portugal Euro 2020 Squad Key Players

Cristiano Ronaldo

Could this be Ronaldo’s final big-stage appearance with Portugal? The 5-time Balon d’Or winner willed his team to the trophy in 2016 and is still focused on winning more. He will be leading the line once again, having scored 11 goals in the qualifiers already. The 35-year-old has lost a few yards in recent times but he still remains a gargantuan presence on the pitch. His experience and finishing ability still makes him the best forward in the tournament.

Bernardo Silva

The Portugal number ten has developed into a top creative force both for his country and at Manchester City. He can play out wide and centrall as well, breaking down the opposition defence with his skill, vision and passing range. The 24-year-old’s work rate is second to none, always doing more than asked of him on the pitch.
