The only player to have scored a goal for Portugal in the Euros. Nani will have a crucial role to play if Portugal have to progress far in to this competition. His pace and movement will be as important as his experience in  playing such big matches which should help his team.

2.Cristiano Ronaldo

The big superstar in the Portugese team, Cristiano Ronaldo has not lived up to his promise so far in France. He has not played well in both games so far and will try and create and score more opportunities for his team. How he will fare will give a good idea how the match will pan out for Ronaldo.

3. Adam Szalai

After a promising display against Aistria, Zoltan Gera provided a masterful performance against Iceland. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Iceland team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what Hungary can accomplish against Portugal. A strong showing in this match will go a long way in ensuring his team progresses through to the last 16.

5. Ricardo Quaresmo

Quaresmo has been hot and cold in the two matches so far at the Euros. Portugal would expect him to deliver sooner rather than later on a much more consistent basis. Ricardo Quaresmo should be looking to score more goals for Portugal if they need to progress further in this competition.
