The Portugal national football team was formed in 1914, but didn’t make it to a world cup until 1966. Over the years the team has featured some of the best players in the world, including Eusebio, Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite this the side has never won a world cup or European championship.
Their first world cup still represents the side’s best finish. The Portugal national football team lost in the Euro 2004 final to Greece, and have made it to the semi-finals of the same competition on three other occasions.
The team’s first international was played in 1921, a 3-1 defeat to Spain in Madrid. Their biggest win of 8-0 has happened on three occasions. Twice against Liechtenstein in 1994 and 1999, and once against Kuwait in 2003. A hefty 10-0 loss to England in 1947 still represents the Portugal national football team’s biggest defeat.
