Team profile

Merely having Cristiano Ronaldo in your ranks should be enough to lift you into the favourite's bracket for a World Cup, but question marks hang over his form for Portugal, and the form of the national team as a whole. The biggest question mark of all seems to hang over the coach, Carlos Queiroz. Many Portuguese fans believe the former Manchester United assistant manager is just that, a number two, unable to lead a team or make the big decisions.

An impressive record on paper and one which seemingly justifies a Fifa ranking of third, but on closer inspection they have not faced a team inside the world's top 15 during that unbeaten run. Group G pits them against Brazil, the number one ranked team, and that is sure to give a true reflection of Portugal's standing in the world game.
