A new chance to write more history for his national team.

Luxembourg-Portugal will be the second match for the Lusitanians on their way to Euro 2024. The previous one, won against Liechtenstein, saw Cristiano Ronaldo once again enter soccer history by becoming the footballer with the most appearances in a national team’s jersey. And CR7 will also star from the first minute in Sunday’s match.

In fact, Portugal coach Roberto Martinez will rely on him again from the first minute in the Lusitanian selection’s offensive tandem. Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to pair up with Joao Felix, in a formation rich in quality and difficult to frame in a precise tactical scheme. Indeed, Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes are expected in midfield, both of whom can also act on the forward line.

The match will kick off at 8:45 p.m. on Sunday, March 26.
