A match between Portugal and Ghana will be played at Stadium 974 in Doha on November 24, 2022, in what will be Portugal’s first match of the tournament. Aside from Ghana, Uruguay, and South Korea, Portugal will be competing in Group H of the 2022 FIFA World Cup along with Ghana.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Portugal Players, Squad

Who will be included in Portugal’s World Cup squad for 2022? Fernando Santos took a step closer to deciding on a final 26-man squad with the call-ups he made for June’s Nations League games, bringing the team closer to the final 26.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the most prolific international goalscorer in September of last year, and he has continued to add to his tally ever since. 36-year-old might not be as mobile as he once was, but he remains one of the most decisive attacking players on the planet.

There is no shortage of talent in the forward areas of Portugal, with Joao Felix, Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, and Andre Silva all looking to make an impact at the Qatar World Cup 2022.

How many players are Portugal allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?

For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When will the final Portugal Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?

The 2022 World Cup will take place between the 21st of November and the 18th of December.

Although the next World Cup will take place at a different time from the traditional football calendar, it is usually six weeks before the World Cup starts that the squads for the tournament are announced.

There is a possibility that this will change with club football being played closer to the start of the competition.

Who will make the final Portugal Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?

There are a few players that we expect to be a dead cert for Fernando Santos’s final Portugal 2022 World Cup squad, barring any injuries or bans that arise.

Obviously, Cristiano Ronaldo will be on the plane to Qatar as well. There is a strong likelihood that this will be his last chance to win the World Cup. Although he will be nearly 38 by the time the match kicks off, few would bet against him finishing as the tournament’s top scorer, regardless of his age.

The other player in the squad who is virtually guaranteed a place in the squad is Bruno Fernandes, his teammate at Old Trafford. In addition, the same can be said for the trio of Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, and Bernardo Silva who play for Manchester City.
