Portugal, aims for first World Cup title

Portugal is one of the teams who are the favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup and it is no longer surprising. Looking at their team, is very clear that this squad is indeed a title contender. However, although it is no doubt that their squad is one of the best, they have yet to win a title. Yes, the Portuguese never won a single World Cup title, despite having Cristiano Ronaldo on their squad. As they have an opportunity to get the title, they will do everything to finally win a World Cup title.

Portugal participates in their sixth successive World Cup since 2002. However, they first participated in 1966, where they also had their best performance in the World Cup. On the first time they participated in the World Cup, they already finished the third. This just proves that Portugal has a system that makes the competitive as early as their first appearance. For their group, it is no longer surprising that they will be at the top of their group stage and enter the Round of 16. They want to end their streak of not going past the Round of 16 for the past three World Cups.

This squad experienced glory internationally when they defeated France in the Euro 2016 Finals, where they had a stunning run. Since then, they failed to be as impressive as expected of them, and underperformed in other international contests. During the 2018 World Cup, they were eliminated by Uruguay, which is in the same group as them this year. Just last summer, Belgium defeated them in the Round of 16 of Euros. Their recent results are very disappointing, considering the members of their squad. Indeed, they are a very strong team, but their recent results says otherwise.

This team is one of the team that has the deepest and most balanced squad with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Rafael Leao with them. Looking at their squad, they are a perfect team. Ronaldo, their main man is not getting any younger, they need to take advantage that he is still there to help them get the title.
