Greatest Portuguese Football Players of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano 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

I think he is the greatest in history of football.

2 Eusébio Eusébio

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

One word :machine

3 Luis Figo Luis 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.

Figo is by far one of the best players to come out of Portugal. He is a true legend.

7 Pepe

A good defender

Pepe raw af and I went to an international game and was the only player who signed autographs

8 Nani

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.

When he is healthy

Better than the best

BEST PLAYER OF THE WORLD

Couldn't have put that better myself

The Contenders

11 Andre Gomes
