Portugal’s squad choices in World Cup 2022

Coach Fernando Santos of Portugal has high hopes for his team that he refuses to abandon. In the coming World Cup in Qatar, Portugal shall make its eighth appearance, and the coach will do all in his power to make sure his boys come out on top. Sadly, all these guys could ever manage was a third place standing on the pedestal back in 1966.

Now, the Portugal team has been qualified and made it through the playoffs. What will be their performance this time around? Right now, they are in Group H with Uruguay, Ghana, and South Korea. Not the best group ever, but it’s better than nothing.

Here’s a key list of Portugal players for several positions on the soccer field for 2022.

Portugal’s Goalkeepers in World Cup 2022

Maybe this is where Coach Santos’ worries start. Portugal may have great goalkeepers, but not the best in the world. Rui Patricio is a good choice, though slipping up at times. Porto’s Diogo Costa is another amazing young player but is bound experience-wise. Wolves’ Jose Sa is the third option for this position but hasn’t yet debuted on a national team.

Finally, there’s Tiago Rui Silva, Antony Lopes, and Claudio Ramos, all of whom are good choices.

  • Rui Patricio: Roma
  • Jose Sa: Wolves
  • Claudio Ramos: Porto
  • Tiago Rui Silva: Real Betis
  • Antony Lopes: Lyon
  • Diogo Costa: Porto

Portugal’s Defenders in World Cup 2022

In this area, Portugal is second to none. Manchester City skipper Ruben Dias, partnered with veteran candidate Pepe, will hold up the back with full vigor. For the center-back position, Jose Fonte with the present and young star David Carmo, amazing defender Tiago Djalo and Ferro present an amazing sorting. At the right back, we have the brilliant Joao Cancelo, though he face’s considerable competition from Cedric Soares, Diogo Dalot, and Nelson Semedo.

On the left flank, however, Coach Santos has no shortage of options. Nuno Mendes to start with, and then Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro, Braga’s Nuno Sequeira, and Napoli’s Mario Rui.

  • Pepe: Porto
  • Ruben Dias: Manchester City
  • Joao Cancelo: Manchester City
  • Nuno Mendes: PSG
  • Mario Rui: Napoli
  • Diogo Dalot: Manchester United
  • Tiago Djalo: Lille

  • Jose Fonte: Lillle
  • Ricardo Pereira: Leicester City
  • Raphael Guerreiro: Dortmund
  • Domingos Duarte: Getafe
  • Nuno Sequeira: SC Braga
  • Nelson Semedo: Wolves
  • Cedric Soares: Arsenal

Portugal’s Midfielders in World Cup 2022

Portugal has tons of talent in this part of the field too. The obvious choices are Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Neves, and Vitinha. However, the choices are not at all limited to these three.

Matheus Nunes is a bright young guy. William Carvalho, Joao Moutinho, and Andre Gomes bring their expertise to the table. Otavio is a great choice, though he needs to be given the proper chance. Renato Saches was supposed to bring his A-game to the fields at PSG. Right now, however, we can’t see this clearly. The player is struggling for minutes and we have no clue about his participation.

  • Vitinha: PSG
  • William Carvalho: Real Betis
  • Bernardo Silva: Manchester City
  • Joao Mario: Benfica
  • Bruno Fernandes: Manchester United
  • Ruben Neves: Wolves
  • Joao Palhinha: Wolves
  • Matheus Nunes: Wolves
  • Joao Moutinho: Wolves
  • Renato Sanches: PSG
  • Danilo Pereira: PSG
  • Otavio: Porto
  • Andre Gomes: Lille
  • Sergio Oliveira: Galatasaray
  • Daniel Podence: Wolves
  • Pedro Goncalves: Sporting CP

Portugal’s Attackers in World Cup 2022

And then we come to Cristiano Ronaldo. This guy, the one with the most number of international goals in men’s football, will have to be at his best to make Portugal get the ultimate prize at long last in international football.

Joao Felix and Liverpool ace Diogo Jota are both Ronaldo’s supports and are great at it. Milan’s Rafael Leao will also be there with all his rare talent on the field. Then there’s Andre Silva, Goncalo Ramos, Goncalo Guedes, and more who have the potential to lead the team to victory.

In the Premier League, Wolves’ Pedro Neto seems to be doing fine for himself. He could be a part of the World Cup squad. All of these players will have to cope with the retirement of Rafa Silva from international football.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United
  • Diogo Jota: Liverpool
  • Joao Felix: Atletico Madrid
  • Rafael Leao: AC Milan
  • Ricardo Horta: Braga
  • Pedro Neto: Wolves
  • Goncalo Ramos: Benfica
  • Andre Silva: RB Leipzig
  • Goncalo Guedes: Wolves
  • Gelson Martins: Monaco
  • Goncalo Paciencia: Celta de Vigo
  • Francisco Trincao: Sporting CP

The final team composition for Portugal in World Cup 2022

For the final and also first team composition will come - Diogo Costa. This guy’s apparently replacing Rui Patricio for the qualification Playoffs and right now at Portugal’s No. 1. Ruben Dias and Pepe are in defense as the two center-backs. Mendes and Cancelo are the wide options.

For the defensive midfielder, we have Vitinha. Fernandes is most probably the most attacking option Portugal has. The front three are made of Bernardo, Ronaldo, and Jota.

And that completes the golden eleven.
