Nuno Capucho



Capucho
Portuguese coach Humberto Coelho is a huge admirer of this combative midfielder whose combination of tough tackling and incisive passing have made him a regular in the national side.

Nuno 'Capucho' Rocha, who plays his club football for Porto, is likely to partner Sergio Conceicao in the engine room after an impressive season in the Primera Division.

His role for the national team is more defensive than the duties he carries out at club level but he offers a dangerous counter attacking option as a result

Although relatively inexperienced at this level, the 28-year-old's role in midfield is vital to Coelho's tactics.

If he can reproduce the form he has shown at the Estadio das Antas this season, Portugal may well find themsleves in the quarter-final.
