  1. What players has you left out? maybe Arthur Correia, Jose Augusto, Fernando Chalana, Maniche, Ricardo Pereira, Vicente Lucas!!!

    1. João Pinto is superior to Artur, but it is a acceptable idea rate artur ahed him.

      José Augusto simply doens’t have spece in the team. For the right winger/midfielder there are Figo and Futre. If I would make a reserve squad with 9 players for sure that I would add him.

      Fernando Chalana have a very good peak, however his time at France was not really good. Futre is superior to him.

      Maniche was good but not enough. Ricardo was shit.

      For centre back position, there a lot of competition between Couto, Lucas, Pepe and Cardoso, but I’ve added Cardoso since that he played also as left-back.

    2. Updated: Graça OUT, Augusto IN.

      That was the only way to add him in the squad. Portugal have to many world class fowards and wingers. ❤

      1. Because Cardoso is also a option to Left-Back position. Hilário is the only true left-back in the squad. To get a balance squad, is necessary Cardoso.

  2. but there is no cardoso in the team. why? why not raphael guerrero !? hilário is the only left back in the squad. and since that you are portuguese, may I ask you about guerrero? And who is arthur jose pereira? are you sure about the inclusion of a player from the eraly of the previous century!?

    1. From books that I’ve consulted (early 2018) Álvaro Cardoso never played precisely in the left back position. He was the left fullback under 2-3-5 for Portugal NT in his playing days. And I trend to interpretate the fullback of 2-3-5 as central defender in actual speak terms. At the beginning of 2018 I’ve retired Álvaro Cardoso. With Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho, Humberto Coelho and Germano, he is not necessary.

      Portugal really doesn’t have great left sidebacks trought history, Raphael Guerreiro is just young, he was the best LB of EURO 2016 but is just 7 games, aside that he was irregular. The injuries also doesn’t help him. Sadly, I have the impress that he will suffer in the future with injuries. So, I decided include Artur José Pereira in the squad, since that I trend to interpretate the half-backs of 2-3-5 as wingbacks, and he was a left half-back from that formation.

      Artur José Pereira, surprising, was regarded as the best portuguese footballer ever in the decade of 40, even with Pinga under high consideration (I read references of Pinga being one of the best inside-fowards ever from Continental Europe before 1941).

      1. thanks for your ideas, I understand your ideas, but it does not mean that I agree. it is very strange for me put that very old players, I only have consideratons only after 1920, but I respect your opinion.
