Portugal vs Ireland Match Preview and Team News
Portugal is back to action for the first time after being dethroned as European champions, and they’ll be hosting the Republic of Ireland as the World Cup qualifiers resume. While Ireland is still in search of their first point(s), Portugal is joint top of Group A with Serbia and will be looking to pull clear. Portugal didn’t do so well at the Euros and head to this game on three straight winless matches, but still a very strong side. They’ve failed to score in just one of their last five matches but have conceded twice or more in two of their previous three matches. Portugal hasn’t lost in their last 12 World Cup qualification matches and has just one loss in 22. At home, their only loss in 18 games was against France in the Nations League. Danilo Pereira is an excellent player, very useful for the team, all praise for him. Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest star of the national team, he is a football machine, and it is a real pleasure to watch this man.
Ireland’s last meeting with Portugal was in 2014, a friendly match they lost 5-1. They suffered straight losses in their opening two games of these qualifiers, the most recent a disappointing one, as they fell at home to lowly-ranked Luxembourg. Manager Stephen Kenny has endured a tough start to the Ireland job, and they go to this game having won just one of the last 14 matches, against Andorra in a friendly. The visitors haven’t scored in seven of their previous ten matches and have just one clean sheet in the last five matches. Going to this game, Ireland has no win in their last four World Cup qualification matches; they’ve failed to score in two and have three straight losses. Troy Parrott enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Adam Idah is a young striker who plays in Norwich, and he is expected to score as many goals as possible and bring joy to his nation.
