The Euros: Special - What's The Deal With Portugal!
Superstar expectations, yet a lack of superstars in the squad. A team of players scattered across big European clubs, yet lacking in depth. Squad balance issues, media perception challenges, tactical conundrums; central midfielders playing on the wing, wingers playing centre forward... welcome to Portugal in Euro 2016.
The divisive misfits from Group F are discussed at length by host Marco Lopes (@FootyML) and his Portuguese colleagues from the excellent @BenficaPodcast, namely Cristiano Oliveira (@10CO10) and Alfredo Fumacas (@talkingtodadoll). They muse over Portugal's underwhelming group stage performance, their luck of the draw, their resilient show against Croatia and the upcoming clash against Poland. All this and more – only on the Anfield Index European podcast!
