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

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

3Luis Figo
he has done so much for the country
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.
Greatest skills I have ever seen. So much precision. Greatest footballer in the world by far.

A Symbol and idol for all Portuguese soccer players
Great player, great caracter

Couldn't have put that better myself

10Pepe
Pepe isthe worst players of all time

The Contenders

11Pauleta

12Vitor Baia

13Nene
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.

14Fábio Coentrão
Coentrao best defender amazing speed and rocket shots

15Ricardo Carvalho

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).

17Bento

I was born in the same town great Soccer player.

18Mario Coluna

19Paulo Sousa

20Ricardo Quaresma
Ricardo Quaresma amazing football player We Love You Q7 <3
Could be one of the best in our time

21Manuel Fernandes
Fernandes is best player

22Fernando 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

23João Vieira Pinto
