This will be Cristiano Ronaldo's last chance to get his hands on the prestigious trophy

Portugal have one of the strongest squads for the World Cup this year, with the team having incredible depth. This will be one of the finest opportunities for Ronaldo to lead his side to immortality.

Portugal have always been regarded as a struggling team due to incompetence and a lack of top-tier performing players, but thanks to their emerging talents and many players asserting their merit on the pitch. The 2016 Euro Champions have been named golden generation this time, and manager Fernando Santos will be wishing his side lives up to par in this World Cup.

Portugal will be making their eighth World Cup appearance, and they have yet to win the highest prize in football. Their best campaign was in 2006 when they reached the semi-finals before being ousted by France.

Although they could not qualify directly for the World Cup after finishing second, they had to play in playoff matches to guarantee a World Cup berth, which they eventually achieved. Ronaldo, 37, has been out of form lately but will seek to resurrect his form ahead of the World Cup.

Portugal are seeded in Group H along with Uruguay, Ghana, and South Korea. Although it is not an easy group, Portugal will undoubtedly win the group, given the richness of their squad. Otherwise, it will be seen as a massive waste for the nation.

on November 24, they will kick up their 2022 World Cup campaign against Ghana. The 26 men who will take part are listed below.
