The veteran forward – who has a record 130 goals for his country – leads the way for Portugal’s star-studded squad, which includes a who’s who of Premier League talent.

Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, Matteus Nunes and Ruben Diaz are joined by Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, Man United captain Bruno Fernandes, Fulham pair Joao Palhinhia and Ruben Nevez, and Wolves’ Pedro Neto and Jose Sa. Put all those lads together and you have a team that may be challenging the upper echelons of the Premier League.

However, much will depend on how the management handles the Ronaldo situation. His game time (or lack thereof) has upset the camp during the last couple of major tournaments, but it takes a brave man to leave him out.

For the Czech Republic (or Czechia as it’s also called now), the days of having big name European stars have waned and the Portuguse will be heavy favourites. It seems a long, long time since the team of Patrik Berger, Vladimir Smicer, Karel Poborsky and Paval Nedved went all the way to the 1996 final.
