Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to make a record sixth participation in the European Championship for Portugal. Ronaldo, 39, made his debut in the competition in 2004 and guided the national team to victory in 2016. Despite uncertainties regarding his future with the national team after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo remains an important member of Martínez’s squad.

Portugal’s primary objective in the Euro 2024 groups is to advance smoothly, which they are likely to do given that they will be facing Turkey, the Czech Republic, and first-time qualifiers Georgia in Group F.

Manager

After the loss against the North African team, Fernando Santos resigned and Roberto Martinez took over as coach. The selection of the former Belgium manager was controversial, but he has impressed thus far, leading his team to a perfect record in their first ten games.

Key Players

Ronaldo, who currently represents Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia, has already achieved the remarkable feat of holding the men’s world record for both caps (206) and international goals (128).

Despite his age, Ronaldo won’t be the oldest player in the team. According to Martinez, Pepe, who used to play for Real Madrid and is now with Porto, has been included in the team due to his significant contribution to the dressing room.

Joining Ronaldo in the attack, Martinez has chosen strikers Rafael Leao, Joao Felix, and Goncalo Ramos, along with Pedro Neto and Francisco Conceicao.

The creative midfielders feature Bernardo Silva, who recently clinched an English title with Manchester City, and Bruno Fernandes from Manchester United.
