Euro 2016 Portugal vs Croatia

Cristiano Ronaldo


The one true superstar in the Portugal team, Ronaldo has not lived up to his promise so far in France. He has scored two goals in the last do or die match against Hungary and will try and score again against Croatia. How he will fare will give a good idea how the match will pan out for Portugal.

Luis Nani


The man who will be looking to provide the goals for this Portugal team, Nani will be looking to get one past the impressive Croatian team early in the match. With Portugal desperately looking for goals, Nani and his team mates will be trying to past the Croatian defense at every opportunity.

Ivan Rakitic

Croatia vs. Portugal, 10th June 2013

After a promising display against Turkey, Rakitic provided a masterful performance against Spain. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Spanish team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what Croatia can accomplish against Portugal. A strong showing in the Euro 2016 Portugal vs Croatia match  is important. It will go a long way in ensuring his team progresses through to the last 8.



The leader of this Portugese team, Pepe will be looking to lead his team from the front by helping keep a clean sheet against Croatia. His experience and leadership qualities will be a beg help to a rather young Portugal team.

Ivan Perisic


Ivan Perisic has been one of the Croatia’ best performers in Euro 2016 Croatia campaign. His immaculate passing ability coupled with a sharp footballing mind makes him a super weapon in the Croatian arsenal. His performance in the Euro 2016 Portugal vs Croatia match will have a big impact on who goes through into the quarter finals.
