Portugal happy to play darkhorse role against Spain

With FIFA world cup around the corner, there are millions of fans across the globe who are geared up for this event and cheering up for their favorite teams. While there are few potential contenders who are being projected as favorites, there are also some of the matches that are highly awaited. And one of them is Spain vs Portugal. With many people anticipating Spain to have an upper hand, Portugal is glad to go into the match as an underdog and come out with flying colors. Portugal is current European champions, but much of their success depends on their star player, Cristiano Ronaldo. And if he gets going on the day, Spain might have to go an extra mile to make stop him.

There has been a lot of speculation about the replacement of coach for the Spanish team and whether it would have any kind of repercussions on the game as well as the tournament. But one thing to remember is how balanced the Spanish side is and they are experienced enough to take on any side. But the Portuguese team, on the other hand, is quite grounded and are training pretty hard to be on the winning side. While they are aware of the fact that they are the current European champions, FIFA world cup is a different ball game and that they haven’t played their neighboring opponents since 2012. While it is definitely predicted to be one of the exciting matches of the tournament, only time would tell who could hold their nerves and create some magic on the field.
