Possible Line-Up for Portugal Nation Team 2022 World Cup

Portugal XI (4-3-3): Diogo Costa; Cancelo, Dias, Pepe, Mendes; Neves, Vitinha, Fernandes; Bernardo Silva, Ronaldo, Leao

The first choice between the sticks should be Diogo Costa, with Porto replacing the more experienced Rui Patricio for the qualifiers and now looking poised to be Portugal’s number 1.

The second choice between the sticks should be Rui Patricio, as he has proven time and time again that he is one of the best goalkeepers in Europe. He has experience on his side and proved himself to be a top quality keeper when called upon for Portugal during Euro 2016.
