They qualified via the play-offs, but don't rule them out
Portugal booked their place at Euro 2012 in style by thrashing Bosnia and Herzegovina 6-2 in the second leg of their play-off, after stuttering to a 0-0 draw when they first met.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice that day, taking his tally from qualification to seven in eight games.
The performances of the Real Madrid superstar will determine their progress in Ukraine and Poland.
There is quality in defence, namely Bruno Alves, Fabio Coentrao and the villainous Pepe, but considering the quality of their opposition in Group B, it's best to stay clear of a side that shipped four to Cyprus.
Star Man - Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo can put his personal battle with Lionel Messi to one side this summer when he takes centre stage at Euro 2012.
The Portugal captain will be a popular fantasy football selection because he's almost guaranteed to score every time he plays.
Playing further forward as an almost out-and-out striker at Real Madrid these days, Ronaldo scored the ridiculous sum of 60 goals for the Spanish champions, in all competitions this season.
Now 27, the former Manchester United forward, has 32 international goals and will probably float from the left wing before scoring with long shots, tap-ins, free-kicks, headers and back heels.
One to Watch - Nelson Oliveira
The new golden boy of Portuguese football may be the out-and-out striker his country has waited so long for.
Nelson Oliveira is only 20, but scored the winner against Zenit St Petersburg on his Champions League debut.
He was the Silver Ball winner at the last U20 World Cup and the campaign for Oliveira to take Helder Postiga's starting role up front is gaining momentum in Portugal.
