Last stop for Cristiano Ronaldo’s side ahead of Euro 2024

Portugal are going to face Ireland in their last friendly match as they are preparing for the upcoming Euro. Even though Portugal lost to Croatia in their first friendly match they still have enough quality to be given a very tough time to the away team.

Overall Portugal’s team is filled with top-quality players as they are led by Cristiano Ronaldo who broke many records in the Saudi Pro League. Portugal are one of the teams who are favourites to win this upcoming UEFA Euro 2024 tournament. Roberto Martinez will be hoping to have a good tournament in Germany.

Ireland failed to qualify for the Euro and it doesn’t have a good record against Portugal but still, they have players who are capable enough to give Portugal a tough time on the pitch, and they are good enough of beat the home team with their counter-attacking gameplay.

Before going into this tournament winning this match will be very important for the home team as they will need to be confident going into the tournament. Ireland will have to give their best to get something positive from this match.

Players to Watch

Bernardo Silva (Portugal)

Silva’s playing style is a delightful blend of attacking flair, technical brilliance, and exceptional vision. His unique skills and techniques set him apart as one of the best players in the world.

Silva’s close control, quick feet, and agility allow him to navigate through tight spaces, elude defenders, and dictate the flow of the game. Silva’s astute vision and creative mindset enable him to spot gaps in the opposition’s defence, threading through balls, and creating scoring chances.

Sammie Szmodics (Ireland)

Despite Szmodics having no standout feature to his game, it’s his dynamism that makes him so good. His ability to play with the ball at his feet or intelligent runs in behind makes him a handful, causing defenders huge problems. He is a good playmaker as well and is not a selfish player inside the box, it’s his passing ability which opens the opposition defences wide open.
