The Best Soccer Players from Portugal 

Despite boasting some of the finest players to have ever graced the game, Portugal have rarely found themselves among the world's elite when it comes to major international tournaments.

Indeed, the closest that they have come to picking up silverware was at Euro 2004, when they were beaten by surprise winners Greece in the final on home soil. You have to go all the way back to 1966 for their best showing at a World Cup as they finished third in England.

Hopes will be high that they can challenge that this summer in Brazil, although they nearly didn't make it at all having squeezed past Sweden in a qualifying playoff to reach the finals.
