Greatest Portuguese Football Players of All Time

The Top TenXW

1Cristiano Ronaldo

C. Ronaldo's the best there is.
He's passionate about what he does and he does it the best. He's skills are incomparable to those of modern football players. Some might say he's just selfish but doing what he does best without the help of teammates and providing teammates with quality passes is not what should be called selfish. He's magnificent and a complete football player and most of all he's a true footballing icon and the one that can never be forgotten. A true legend.

Most talented, great scorer and still going strong to earn more goals at 25!

RONALDO does NOT cry like a baby so everyone shut up who thinks he does and ronaldo is SOO MUCH BETTER THAN LIONEL ANDRES MESSI! RONALDO IS THE BEST AND U STINK EVERYONE WHO DOESN'T VOTE FOR HIM HA

He is my favourite football player.I compared him against Messi in my football top trumps he beat him by 4 on 3.He is just the best player ever.

2Eusébio

definitely the greatest portuguese footballer of all time and one of the best there has ever been. this guy is a legend.

Eusebio was by far the best footballer Portugal ever produced. So talented, a joy to watch. Up there with the likes of Pele.

He is the best, but most people of today didn't watch him play like they are now watching C Ronaldo, check out statistics, I believe He is better than Pele but alas Portugal didn't win the World Cup in his days

He's the best Portuguese player ever

3Luis Figo

There is no other that has it all - endless talent, class, tact, maturity, dedication (for the game, family, his nation). Not a sore loser when he doesn't win. No wonder he gets along with Messi and so many other greats. You won't find him crying like a baby like Ronaldo. But mostly... did I say INCREDIBLY TALENTED.

he has done so much for the country

Greatest skills I have ever seen. So much precision. Greatest footballer in the world by far.

One of the best strikers of all time

Cristano Ronaldo does not suck you do ha ha ha ha fatty

He should be number 3! Cristiano Ronaldo? He sucks

6Deco

He is one of the legends

7Coluna

He was another one of the greats! He played with Eusébio and was from the Portugese Colony of Mozambique too! He has been overlooked.

12Pauleta

Great player, Portugeuse legend! My idol.

13Pepe

Pepe is actually a dirty fouler neymar is better than him obviously, please vote thumbs up for this

14Ricardo Carvalho

The best defender in the world!

15Paulo Sousa
16Nuno Gomes

He is the Best True Center Forward Portugal Ever Had. Portugal has good players in every position, but he is the only Portuguese player that is a center forward that is great at heading, receiving passes and finishing.

Nuno Gomes the only Portuguese striker who relishes the big matches!

Nuno Gomes is our best striker in 90/2000, scored so many important goals in different big tournements (U20 World Cup 1995, Atlanta Olympic 1996, Euro 2000, 2004, 2008, World Cup 2006).

17Fernando Chalana

Chalana is one of the first modern wingers

I don't think that Chalana was the best, best he was great. He could get past an opponnent whithout dribling (literally speaking). He should be in the Top 5

18Ricardo Quaresma

Ricardo Quaresma amazing football player We Love You Q7 <3

If he could be more relax, We would see him in first 3

Could be one of the best in our time

19Maniche

Beast in midfield for Portugal in the 2000's, those wonder goals against the Netherlands he scored in euro 2004, then in world cup 2006, I would never forget

Best portuguese midfielder with great stamina and power capable of scoring goals.

20Fábio Coentrão

Coentrao best defender amazing speed and rocket shots
