Jon has yet to fill out a bio.
Always nice to hear the positives! But surely there are some negatives?
Coentrao plays so much better in a Portuguese uniform compared to when he plays for Real Madrid. He can play the way he wants to for the Portuguese team, he's better suited to the style. William did a good job in the centre of the park, in my opinion. He wasn't flashy or anything, but he put in some good tackles. Ronaldo was just being Ronaldo, breaking another record. Your thoughts on the game and the new kit?
How well would William Carvalho fit in the Premier League?
Oh, thanks, I didn't know that he had to go through a FIFA process, I thought he was cleared to play.
Our striker situation is worrying. Oliveira had a fantastic start for Rennes, but he faded. Even when he does play for Portugal, he's really selfish. It's a shame since a couple of years ago he was considered as one of the top talents in World Football. Hopefully Eder recovers completely and is back in form. I read somewhere that Lima can be selected for the Portuguese National Team. Is that true?
I think William Carvalho can become an important player this summer, he's been doing great. I really hope Fernando will be eligible for selection before the World Cup squads are announced.
I'm kind of surprised that Bento didn't select Fernando for the upcoming friendly. I really thought that Bento would call him up. This would have been a good opportunity for Fernando to show what he can do in a Portugal uniform, even though it's just a friendly and he could've linked up with some of his potential teammates for the World Cup. Sadly, I don't think Bento has Fernando in his plans right now. Hopefully Bento changes his mind.
Im a little biased when it comes to queresma i still see him as the player he was last time he was at Porto and not the player he is today. I do hope Portugal play with someone other than Nani though he hasnt impressed me and he is out of form
Hey jon with Nani not playing in months and queresma playing really well in Porto do you think he can start for Portugal or do you see someone else taking his position
Ideal line-up for the World Cup? What would you think the tactics for all the Group Games Portugal will be in?
With a couple of changes in the starting 11 (Eder for Postiga and Fernando/William for Veloso), I think Portugal could be a huge surprise in the World Cup. We handled Spain and Germany pretty well in Euro 2012 and were unlucky to lose in those games. It's also nice to have Cristiano Ronaldo, who's in the form of his life.
I really hope Bento calls up Fernando. I think William's progress will be really important as he could be an interesting option for a call up.
