BALL – “Portugal is one of the main contenders for the title” (World Cup 2022)



BALL - "Portugal is one of the main contenders for the title" (World Cup 2022)

Ricardo Cheu, coach of the Cypriot Doxa team, elects Ronaldo, Ruben Diaz, Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes as the main figures of the national team. He believes that Portugal is one of the options with a lot of better options.

– How are things in Portugal?

– Portugal is not surprising, they are just gaining the status of a candidate for the title, as they collect not only a very strong 11, but also luxurious alternatives for a competition that, according to our selection, should have been of a high level. We are probably the team with the most options and the highest quality in the World Cup.

– What importance do you attach to the Portuguese national team? From 0 to 20…

– I put 15. The cost is presented for exhibitions … but if in terms of quality, then of course I would put … 18.

– The main or main figures of Portugal?

– I choose four! Ronaldo is not because he needs presentations or more challenges/incentives in his career, but because he is committed to helping the national team reach their goal. The status he represents entails responsibility, and he is ready to “carry” and lead our Selection. The responsibility does not fall on his back, just the motivation to once again prove that he is the best in the world. Ruben Diaz, the defense boss, plays simply, cleanly and practically. He is a young centre-back but a giant in our defence. Bernardo Silva, small big player, dribbler, always with his head up and ready to take the ball with or without pressure. Finally… Bruno Fernandes, tactical intelligence in occupying spaces and masterful movements.

– Who are the main contenders for the title?

– Portugal is undoubtedly one of the main candidates. Another candidate? Spain … a capable team thanks to their style of play, a strong team, patient and with individual qualities to unlock the opposing teams.

– How do you see the challenge with South Korea?

– A game with the ability to give minutes to other players, with a focus on winning and winning first place, regardless of the players who can play, we have a capable team, with alternative calls for clear superiority.

– What eleven would you launch in a game against South Korea?

– Diogo Costa, Dalot, António Silva, Pepe, Rafael Guerreiro, Paligna, Vitinha, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo and Goncalo Ramos.
