Portugal have failed to defend their title this year as Belgium were knocked out of UEFA Euro 2020 in the 16th round. Cristiano Ronaldo finished with five goals as the tournament’s top scorer, but his single effort was not enough to give his people a third major title.
Portugal had a strong squad in this tournament, which was better than 2016 in terms of quality, so it was a surprise to see them fighting in the group stage. They participated in this edition’s “Death Group” along with Germany, France and Hungary, so they had to be prepared for some challenges.
Players like Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Andre Silva and Ronaldo have had a great season with clubs. A lot was expected of the reigning champions, but in the end, only Ronaldo could step on the challenge, while others had a tournament they should have forgotten.
While this was a disappointing campaign for Portugal, some players did their best to support Ronaldo. In this post, we take a look at Portugal’s top five players at Euro 2020.
