Player Name - FIGO
Between 2002 and 2004, the Portugal national football team experienced significant events and transitions, highlighted by their participation in two major tournaments: the 2002 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2004.
2002 FIFA World Cup: Portugal's 2002 World Cup campaign in South Korea and Japan was met with high expectations. The team, managed by António Oliveira, boasted a mix of experienced veterans like Luís Figo, Rui Costa, and young rising stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the tournament was a disappointment. Portugal was shockingly eliminated in the group stage after losses to the United States and South Korea, managing only a win against Poland.
UEFA Euro 2004: The UEFA Euro 2004 tournament was a defining moment for Portuguese football. Portugal hosted the tournament, and there was a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement across the nation. The team, now managed by Luiz Felipe Scolari, reached the final after impressive victories, including a significant win over Spain in the group stage and a memorable semi-final triumph against the Netherlands.
The final, played at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, ended in heartbreak for the Portuguese as they were defeated by Greece in one of the biggest upsets in the history of European football. Greece, managed by Otto Rehhagel, won 1-0 thanks to a goal by Angelos Charisteas. This was Portugal's first appearance in a major tournament final, and despite the loss, the tournament marked a period of resurgence for Portuguese football.
Players: During this period, several Portuguese players were making their mark both domestically and internationally. The golden generation, which included players like Luís Figo, Rui Costa, and João Pinto, was complemented by emerging talents such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, and Ricardo Carvalho. Cristiano Ronaldo's performances at Euro 2004 established him as one of the world's most exciting young talents.
Playing Style: Under Scolari, Portugal played an attacking brand of football, blending technical skill with a South American flair that Scolari brought from his time coaching Brazil. The team was well-organized, and the home crowd support at Euro 2004 added an extra level of intensity to their play.
Legacy: The period of 2002 to 2004 was bittersweet for Portugal. While the World Cup was a notable failure, the impressive run to the Euro 2004 final on home soil laid the groundwork for future successes, including their victory at Euro 2016. It was a time of transition, where the old guard was phasing out, and a new generation, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, was beginning to take the stage.
