Morocco is a good team but Spain has a laughable group. Ronaldo gets his team to the next round

Surprisingly Fábio Coentrão released a statement saying he doesn´t feel fit enough represent Portugal well in the WC.
He had a good season for Sporting, the first in years where he didn´t struggle with injuries and you could feel his confidence again.
He´d likely start as well because Guerreiro didn´t play consistently this season.
Even though I don´t like him I feel that it was a very noble decision for him, even more considering that this would be his last WC with an almost guaranty of a place in the first 11.

Fernando Santos released a first list of 35 players yesterday (don´t know why since he´ll annonce the last 23 in 3 days) and it´s a mystery who´s going to be called for the extra LB spot.
Antunes, Mário Rui are the natural players for that position but I don´t think Antunes has a chance. I believe Mário Rui will be called even though a lot of people prefer Ricardo who can also play as LB to fill the position since apparently the coach doens´t want him as a RB.

Final List:

Gks - Anthony Lopes (Lyon), Beto (Goztepe) e Rui Patrício (Sporting)

Defenders - Bruno Alves (Rangers), Cédric Soares (Southampton), José Fonte (Dalian Yifang), Mário Rui (Nápoles), Pepe (Besiktas), Raphael Guerreiro (Dortmund), Ricardo Pereira (FC Porto) e Rúben Dias (Benfica)

Midfielders - Adrien Silva (Leicester), Bruno Fernandes (Sporting), João Mário (West Ham), João Moutinho (Mónaco), Manuel Fernandes (Lokomotiv), e William Carvalho (Sporting)

Forwards - André Silva (Milan), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Gelson Martins (Sporting), Gonçalo Guedes (Valência) e Ricardo Quaresma (Besiktas)

___________

First of all: NO EDER our Lord and saviour, say goodbye to our chances of winning the title!

No surprises when it comes to the Gks.

CBs: B. Alves (36), Fonte (34), Pepe (35), Rúben Dias (21)

Well, super old set of CBs, Ruben Dias doesn´t have any cap for the NT but wasn´t a big surprise considering the age of the rest of the lot.
Bruno Alves was good 8 years ago, Fonte was never great, Pepe is still very good, I wouldn´t be that surprised if Dias player alongside Pepe but Fonte is more likely to play.

LBs: With Coentrão asking to be out of the WC Mário Rui was the most logical option.

RBs: Cedric, I talked about him before, he´s like our 4th best option for the spot but he´s reliable so he´ll start.
Now a surprise was Ricardo, I guess no one saw that coming, not that he´s bad, far from that he had a fantastic season, but he wasn´t even called for the last friendlies and apparently wasn´t an option for the coach, I don´t know what happened in this month that convinced the coach to call him. I believe Cancelo was the better option, Nélson Semedo didn´t have the best season but he plays for Barcelona, I believe everyone was expecting Cedric and Semedo to be called.

On the midfield when Danilo was injured it was almost a given that Ruben Neves was taking that spot, he was always the option when one of Danilo or William couldn´t make it. I´m gutted he wasn´t called and IMO going to a WC with only one defensive midfielder is stupid, even more considering William is facing injuries this end of the season. I´d take him over Adrien that only played half a season.

André Gomes out is also unexpected, not because of his performances because since he signed for Barcelona his performances for the club and NT went from very good to almost amateur, but because the coach loved him and he plays for a big club, anyway he probably didn´t deserve it. Manuel Fernandes didn´t play for us in like 4 years but was back recently, don´t know why we are including a 32 year old again in the team when we have younger options in the midfield but I always liked him and he plays in Russia so I guess that also played in his favor somehow.

Glad Bruno Fernandes was called, entirely deserved, one of the best players in the league, he´s class.

Up front, the only doubts were if Eder was being called because of his goal in the final and, being more rational, in this competitions you need a target man and he´s the only option for the job. it´s not abysmal he´s not going but I still feel bad for him.
Nani out isn´t exactly a surprising because he´s passed it but many still though he´d make it over Gonçalo Guedes, I´m glad he didn´t.



We´ll likely play with

Patricio
Cedric - Pepe - Fonte - Guerreiro
Bernardo Silva - William - Moutinho/Adrien - J. Mário
Ronaldo - André Silva

I´d play with
Patricio
R. Pereira - Pepe - Dias - Guerreiro
Gelson - William - B. Fernandes - Bernardo Silva
Ronaldo - André Silva (only because Ronaldo plays better with him on the pitch otherwise I´d choose Gonçalo Guedes)

Also you can expect to see Quaresma coming on the pitch a lot in the last 20´ the coach revived him for the NT and he´s always a threat coming from the bench.

With a decent league how are your CBs that fking old!!!

Azul
17 May 18, 23:31
Porto was the one that often gave CBs to the NT since forever, Couto, Jorge Costa, Jorge Andrade, Ricardo Carvalho, Pepe, Rolando, Bruno Alves, lately we only play foreigners, currently a brazilian and a spanish guy.

Benfica is playing Dias but only because Luisão is super old, they´ve been playing with Brazilians or Argentinians for years now.

Sporting, the team that plays Portuguese players the most, is now playing Mathieu and Coates also their best portuguese CBS over the years were either sold or are on loan, some of them were very promissing but never really made it big, Nuno Reis, Carriço (this one did OK but moved to CDM), Tobias Figueiredo, Paulo Oliveira, Rúben Semedo are some of those that come to mind but there are others.

We always had great depth in CBs it´s too bad this is happening now, we have some talents that are coming hopefully they can achieve their potential but right now it´s almost embarrassing that we have to rely in all those old guys.

First friendly today, a lot of changes as expected but I think that Fernando Santos is seriously testing 2 things that may give some indications.

Rúben Dias is playing his first international game ever and alongside Pepe, I believe this is to test the consistency of the duo, it´s one of the biggest doubts right now, who´ll pay with Pepe as CB.

Also Adrien Silva is starting with William Carvalho like in the last euro, that probably means that Fernando Santos is giving the midfield spot to Adrien instead of Moutinho even though Adrien had 0 minutes played between August and January (problems with a last minute transfer).

That roster other then Ronaldo Looks super light. Def depends on their veterans but their defense just seems so old.

Yeah, that´s a big surprise, the other one being Gonçalo Guedes up front over André Silva. João Moutinho is also starting instead of Adrien, guess Fernando Santos decided to go with this season form over status.

I´m happy about those 3 changes even though B. Fernandes loses a lot of preponderance on the wings but we´ll see.

Morocco was better but after the first 20 or so minutes, they didn't do too much either, it seemed to be a stalemate mostly. Iran also did have a great one-on-on chance in the first half.

Morocco probably deserved at least a draw, but that's the way it is. Iran played their style and did as much as they could.

Ronaldo
15 Jun 18, 18:48
Yea, ugly but that's their style. This was their second ever win in the world cup so they are probably thinking the aggressiveness is well worth it. Their first ever win was against the US. I remember that match, it was an entertaining one. Iran ended up winning 2-1.

Talking with my friends I predicted a 0-0 and said if Iran ever score it would be from a set piece and most probably a header :lol:

It was a header but by their opponents :lol:

This Guedes guy, who I supposed is the one Valencia will be spending the Cancelo money for, has been awful, messing up two great opportunities already. Cristiano also looked visibly upset with him. Maybe they had better gone for Andre "better-than-Icardi" Silva instead. :awyeah:
By the way, that was classic Diego Costa goal. Winning a duel with a defender, might have fouled in the process, holding up the ball superbly, followed by a ferocious finish.

Portugal has great team defence with possibly the worst individual defenders. And guess what? There's even worse defensive players behind these starters. Credit to Santos, but whenever a defender has to act on his own, Portugal is likely to concede a goal. Happened twice already with Fonte incapable of knowing what to do against a striker with the first goal and with the defender now that couldn't understand that the ball had to be headed away and he simply lowered his body to allow Busquets to win the header.

Cristiano's mental strength and clutchness are really out of this world. He knew he had to put the ball in the back of the net at that exact moment when his team need him the most, and he fucking delivers. Had he taken that same exact free-kick on any other time or situation, I bet he wouldn't even got the ball past the wall, let alone curling it in beautifully into the top corner. He's always gain that extra drive and focus during crunch time. That's why he's up there with Messi despite the other one clearly ahead of him by technical ability alone.

Going by how both of their careers have gone, i am guessing he is happy that he is not Quaresma.

Apparently that game lived up to its billing.

From my perspective, it felt about two days long. Spain was fantastic and as soon as Portugal took the very early lead, it only furthered the likelihood that Spain would dictate play. A legendary performance from a legendary player aside, not sure if Portugal had any business getting anything out of this game. In saying that, Portugal actually could’ve stolen 3 pts has the backline not made some awful mistakes in 2 of the three Spanish goals.

Also, Figo is still the best!

I missed most of the first half, but as far as I have seen first goal of Spain was clearly irregular to me. I think Diego Costa has fouled Pepe on that aerial challenge, so it was a mistake by Rocchi to not give a foul there.

However I do think Portugal was lucky to escape with a draw tonight.

Though CR7 is unbelievable, his game is still up to date despite that he is 33 years old. He is truly a proper definition of a hard working athlete. His sprinting is crazy for his age.

Spain's midfield is nowhere near as good as it should be. Iniesta shouldn't be starting over Thiago, and Silva shouldn't be playing on the left.

The problem with Portugal is that it seems that we are now facing the best team in the world every game, sitting back in the defense, only trying to attack using long balls and conter attacks, our team has quality to play a short passing game because all our players from the midfield up have quality with the ball but it seems that we don’t want to and are happy to just close the eyes, fight and hope that Ronaldo scores.
It’s really annoying we have a much better team this time than in the last Euro but we are happy to play the same way.

Fox (faux) has an annoying female commentator who pretends that she understands tactics when commenting on KSA vs Uruguay. The BBC one is fine tbh nothing wrong with that commentary as for voice yeah she is high pitched but then again did u ever watch Spanish commentators or Portuguese or even Arabic all of them are high pitched.

It boggles my mind how with a team worth 1 billion euros you can't break down Iran who is defending with 7 people inside the box. Just keep Ramos/Pique 30-40 meters out sending long balls to the box, and stuff the rest of the players in the box. Commotion/confusion = goals for the offensive side.

Iran offers 0 counterattacking threat, so there's no point in being conservative. Even if they do, Pique-Ramos being far out in the back, can easily cover.

That would be difficult. Iran's always been an ultra defensive team. They park the bus and then hope for a goal from a set peice. The only reason they attacked Spain at the end was that they were behind and had to come out and score.

They were hoping for a tie against Spain, then a tie against Portugal. With 5 points they would've had a good chance of qualifying.

Against Portugal they need a win so they won't sit deep. They have to come out of their comfort zone, attack Portugal and leave tons of space at the back where Ronaldo can take advantage of.

Realistically, I don't think they would even tie Portugal. If I had to guess I would say 3-0 Portugal.


Last worldcup they played Nigeria first and tied, then played Argentina and managed a draw until very last minutes when Messi scored. Then they had to win against Bosnia, so changed their tactics from ultra defensive and attacked Bosnia, ended up losing 3-0 or 3-1 if I remember correctly.

Azul
25 Jun 18, 18:25
More changes yet again for Portugal, Moutinho had some limitation during the last days and Adrien will play in the midfield.

Quaresma will play on the right instead of Bernardo Silva who´s been terrible so far.
João Mário will play again on the left instead of Bruno Fernandes.

André Silva is back on the attack alongside Ronaldo and Gonçalo Guedes is on the bench.

Let´s see if we can make a good game this time.

Iran plays good football and we´ve been struggling a lot so it´ll be tough, It´ll also be curious if we get knocked out by Iran considering that they have a Portuguese coach who was probably the worst coach we had in the last years.
