The Top Ten

1
Cristiano 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
[Newest]Sadly he is the best and sadly from Portugal and not from Brazil or Spain

2Eusébio
definitely the greatest portuguese footballer of all time and one of the best there has ever been. this guy is a legend.
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
Eusebio was by far the best footballer Portugal ever produced. So talented, a joy to watch. Up there with the likes of Pele.
[Newest]Definitely the best he lead Portugal to 4th place in the 1966 world cup

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.
[Newest]Best player in Portugal

4Rui Costa
Rui costa's technique, vision and passing made him one of the best midfielders portugal ever produced.
A Symbol and idol for all Portuguese soccer players
Great technic and very intelligent player...
[Newest]He as my last name

5Paulo Futre
In my opinion he is the best atletico madrid¬'s best player ever
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.

8Pepe
Pepe is actually a dirty fouler neymar is better than him obviously, please vote thumbs up for this

9Paulo Sousa

10Fernando Couto
Couldn't have put that better myself

The Contenders

11Nani
When he is healthy
I have never seen a player better
Should be higher up its out of order putting him ninth come on

12Vitor Baia

13Pauleta
Great player, Portugeuse legend! My idol.

14Nene
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.

15Fernando 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

16Ricardo Carvalho
The best defender in the world!

17Nuno 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).

18Mario Coluna

19Ricardo Quaresma
Ricardo Quaresma amazing football player We Love You Q7 <3
Could be one of the best in our time

20F√°bio Coentr√£o
Coentrao best defender amazing speed and rocket shots
