Antonio Oliveira
Antonio Oliveira
Position:Coach

Antonio Oliveira is enjoying his second spell as Portugal coach.

He quit after a disappointing Euro 96 where his side exited at the quarter-final stage at the hands of the Czech Republic.

Oliveira has enjoyed life far more second time around, leading his country to their first World Cup since 1986.

But he is under pressure to provide the same mix of entertaining football and good results with which predecessor Humberto Coelho took Portugal to the semi-finals of Euro 2000.

Oliveira was with FC Porto during a playing career in which he won 24 international caps.

He had his first taste of coaching in 1980 as player-manager of Penafiel and became Portugal's Under-21 coach three years later.

He has managed at club level with Vicente, Sporting Braga, Sporting Lisbon, FC Porto and Real Betis before starting his first spell as Portugal manager in 1994.
