Great podcast. Interesting how Jeremy (as a French football analyst) seems to feel that Portugal’s squad is much more talented and deep than it was previously. This seems to be the case for a lot of outsiders looking in.

So much of our squad now plays for prestigious foreign clubs, however, in 2016 some of the best performers played for Sporting (Patricio, William, Joao Mario, Adrien) and also Sanches (Benfica at the time) were important . As the Portuguese league is not closely followed by a lot of pundits, i feel that often resulted in our team being underrated.

2018 was an awkward time for us, a lot of the younger players were too green. I actually think the postponement of the euros will benefit Portugal.

I think Sunday's game should be a good one with how stacked both teams are. I think having the 5 substitutes is definitely being underplayed at the moment. This should be a big help for both teams now that the bench can be utilized more. Can't wait for this game! Força Portugal!!!
