PortugalFutbol.net is pleased to announce that Igor Henriques has joined the site’s writing team. Here’s his introduction:
My name is Igor Henriques and I am very pleased to be the latest addition to PortugalFutbol.net team of writers. I look forward to being able to express passionately my views on the Portuguese national team and also the Portuguese league which is becoming one of the top leagues in the world.
As a Portuguese born citizen, I often tell people in my adopted home of Toronto, Canada that soccer runs through the veins of every Portuguese citizen both home and abroad, it is indeed part of our heritage and culture. To historic figures like the great Eusebio and Chalena to modern day titans like Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo, Portuguese soccer has it’s share of heroes.
While a small country in terms of population size compared to some of Europe and Latin America’s elite, the Portuguese way of soccer with it’s flair and grace has won over many pundits over the years and made me a believer that one day a major world trophy at the senior international level will grace the streets of Portugal.
As for who I think will lead us there, I offer the quote below:
“Please don’t call me arrogant, but I’m European champion and I think I’m a special one”– Jose Mourinho
