FIFA World Cup 2022: Portugal Team Profile, Complete Squad, Schedule, Live Telecast & Streaming Details

2022 FIFA World Cup Portugal team profile: Football fans all over the world are excited for the favorite sports tournament of the year, FIFA World Cup 2022, set to take place between 20th November to 18th December 2022 in Qatar. The 22nd edition of the tournament is also the first ever World Cup to be played in the Arab World. To avoid Qatar’s intense summer heat, 2022 FIFA World Cup is being staged in November and December, unlike previous editions of World Cup which were played in June and July. A total number of 32 teams will be competing in the tournament for the prestigious trophy.

Portugal, currently ranked 9th, will be entering the World Cup with a mix of players covering several generations. Portugal’s chance of winning the 2022 World Cup title depends on the greatest player the country has ever produced — 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo. In the past decade, Portugal witnessed the greatest era in their history by winning big trophies on international stage, namely UEFA EURO 2016 and the 2019 UEFA Nations League. Having ‘five-times FIFA Player of the Year’ Ronaldo in their squad, Portugal is capable of beating any side.

The legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo will be playing his career’s 5th World Cup in 2022. Sadly, the highest goal-scorer in men’s international football is yet to win a World Cup and will probably want to get his hands on the Trophy in his last World Cup outing. At a recent event, Ronaldo had said he wishes to continue playing for Portugal until EURO 2024.
