As Portugal gears up for the 2022 World Cup, head coach Fernando Santos has given the go-ahead to these men. When Portugal competes in their eighth World Cup in Qatar, coach Fernando Santos will be hopeful that his team can meet the high standards. They have never won the coveted trophy; their best finish was third in 1966.

They are in Group H with Uruguay, Ghana, and South Korea. Despite being in a complex group, they stand a solid chance of progressing to the knockout rounds, assuming a stunning upset.

Disappointments

Portugal suffered a severe setback as Liverpool striker Diogo Jota was forced to withdraw from the Qatar tournament due to a calf injury sustained during the 1-0 Premier League victory over Manchester City.

The dynamic attacker would have likely started in the front three alongside Bernardo Silva and Cristiano Ronaldo but now has to observe from a distance.

Diogo Jota Liverpool Injury

Joao Moutinho Wolves Manager’s decision

Portugal National Team Coach

Several hundred more lines would have been added to Fernando Santos’ face if it could fit them after a challenging qualifying campaign in which Portugal messed up a relatively easy group. Nevertheless, the 68-year-old still has the full backing of the players and the FA despite calls for reform from the public and the media.
