Players to Watch


Portuguese Football could be on the cusp of another “Golden Generation.” With the Under-19’s success at the U-19 Euros this summer and the Under-21’s on the brink of qualification for next summer’s Euro tournament, there is much reason to be excited. On top of that, Portugal has qualified for three out of the past four U-20 World Cups, and have impressed in the most recent two.

To bring some of this success to light, PortugalFutbol.net has revamped our “Players to Watch” section. On a regular basis, a member of our writing team will highlight one player who has the potential for a spectacular career. We want to bring young talent out of obscurity, so as to show the true status of Portuguese youth football.

  1. Ruben Neves – FC Porto
  2. Marcos Lopes – Lille
  3. Joao Mario – Sporting
  4. Raphael Guerreiro – Lorient
