The Portuguese Football Association (FPF), Selecção (Qualifier), is one of the strongest national teams in European football. Unfortunately, neither the Portuguese national team nor the club teams have been able to win Euro or World Cup so far, even world-class players such as Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha and Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo. Perhaps this will change in Euro 2008.
Selecção's home games were mainly played in the following stadiums: FC Porto plays in Estádio do Dragão, Estádio da Luz Benfica and Sporting Lisbon Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon. The Portuguese Football Association or the Federação Portuguesa de Futebol (FPF) was established in 1914 nearly 100 years ago. A few years later, Portugal joined the World Federation in 1923 and later joined FIFA and UEFA in 1954. 19659002] The greatest success the Portuguese soccer team A has ever performed when they celebrated the World Cup in England in 1966, who won the title this year. Portugal scored a respectable third place, a sixty-year-old football team, Eusébio, who scored nine goals in the championship.
The European Championship 2004 was a great success in Portugal. In the summer of 1984, in France and at the European Football Championship in Belgium and the Netherlands, they also performed well in the European Football Championship. In the 2006 World Cup, the team included Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo, but unfortunately they still could not do the spell, Portugal again scored a respectable rank and finished fourth.
in the finals of the World Cup in 2006 played in Germany, goalkeeper Ricardo has done great in the penalty shootout against England. He currently holds a Portuguese football record as the first goalkeeper who wore the Portuguese soccer jersey three times at the World Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese football star who plays in the British Manchester United club is a strange distinction that the club and the media secretly sign up only when the stock market is aware of the signing of the shares when it comes to signing up.
Nani has joined his very good friend, Ronaldohoz Manchester United, in the last twelve months. In June 2007, the young player announced the 14,5 million prize award from Sporting Lisbon. He has played as a winger and has been at Manchester United several times this season as the winner of the Spurs. Nani is well-known for celebrating the goal with their acrobatic neighbors who are worthy of an Olympic gymnast.
