Cristiano Ronaldo vs Ragnar Sigurosson

Portugal

Sigurosson has played all his career in the Russian Premier League which makes it unlikely that he has ever faced anyone close to a player like Ronaldo. Cristiano on the other hand is well on his way in to writing his name among the very very best who have ever played this game.

CR7 to win easy.

In what will be his final hurrah, Eiour Guojohnsen will have the chance to end his wonderful career on a high. Nani on the other hand will be determined to make a good impression in the Euros, in order to possibly try and find a move to a big European club again.

The talented mid field ace Moutinho will be in charge of the Portuguese engine. His positioning and clever passes will be at the forefront of Portugal’s attacking threat and he will look to find Ronaldo at every opportunity. Gylfi will try to stop this and play to his creative strengths.

Tough to call.


Pepe vs Kolbeinn Sigborsson

The experienced Pepe will be in charge of the Portuguese defense at the Euros. While Kolbeinn has forged a good reputation for himself at FC Nannes, he will up against a two time Champions League defender for Real Madrid.

In what has been a mini career revival, Quaresma has now become a potent weapon in the Portuguese arsenal. His dribbling and trickery will be on full display as he will attempt to outfox the likes of Birkir and company in the Iceland defense.

Quaresma should win this.
