– Cristiano Ronaldo and company were qualified to step in this tournament, winning five easy group. Note, however, that all succesel that group were obtained limit. Future opponent of Romania in Group A – Albania – is the only one who finished undefeated in the preliminary match with Portugal. Since the last official game of the Iberian Peninsula band has played seven friendlies. He has won four of them, neînregistând any draw. In the last test before leaving for France and Ronaldo did show Quaresma, Portugal swiping 7: 0 modest team of Estonia. Originally, without dropped Real Madrid’s star, representative of the Iberian Peninsula lost 0: 1 England test.
– After seven games islanders had 18 points in a group which also included the Czech Republic, Turkey and the Netherlands. At the end of qualifications team he has not succeeded much, having drawn the last two teams in the group, but those results came probably after a slight easing. Iceland played two matches in the preamble to the final tournament, losing 2: 3 against Norway and achieving a successful irrelevant dispute with modest representative of Liechtenstein.
Despite the fact that Iceland has a highly organized game I think the value of a player like Cristiano Ronaldo will make the difference and Portugal will win this game. Fernando Santos’s students have performed impressively in qualifying, winning seven matches to the limit. Iceland was no harm done but I think for islanders will count negatively debut in such a competition and thus match will be at the discretion of the Lusitania.
