Portugal FIFA World Cup 2022 Team Squad: Captain, Coach & Player List

Portugal FIFA World Cup 2022 Team Squad – Portugal is one of the 32 participating nations at the FIFA World Cup 2022. They have been placed in Group H alongside Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea. The FIFA World Cup will kick off on 20th November with hosts taking on Ecuador. Portugal will begin their campaign on 24th November against Ghana. Group H seems to be a good place for Portugal to be in. It will not be a huge task for Cristiano Ronaldo’s side to make it through the group stage. Their match against Uruguay will be an interesting one and can decide who finishes at top of the group. 

Portugal has been one of the tough sides to beat in recent years. With the likes of Ronaldo, Pepe, Silva and Joto the team has produced great results for the team. Everyone remembers the Euro 2016 heroics where Portugal were crowned champions. 

Portugal has not been at their best when it comes to the FIFA World Cup. Barring their performances at the 1966 and 2006 world cup, Portugal has been disappointing at the biggest stage. Portugal lost to Uruguay in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Round of 16. 

With Ronaldo leading the team, Portugal can surely be a team who can repeat the heroics of 2016 Euro Championships
