Greatest Portuguese Football Players of All Time

The Top TenXW

1Cristiano RonaldoCristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

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 a great player.

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

Worlds greatest and funniest

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

6Deco

One of the best "10" of all-times, and the best to reach the portuguese football, the best Porto player ever

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.

8Fernando Couto

Couldn't have put that better myself

9Vitor Baia
10Nani

Nani is my idol, he is underrated, my favorite player to watch. I only say he is underrated due to the fact he has been compared to Ronaldo. If Ronaldo was not to be playing in the same Era has Nani I have no doubt Nani would have been seen as a better Portuguese soccer player comparably. At the peak of his health and top of his form he is one of the greatest players in portuguese history.

Should be higher up its out of order putting him ninth come on

I have never seen a player better

Better than the best

14Ricardo Carvalho

The best defender in the world!

15Paulo Sousa
16Fernando Chalana

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

18Nuno 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).

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.
