In this story, I will be managing Portugal, who are yet to win a major international footballing competition. They've come close, most notably in their loss in the European Championships of 2004 to underdogs Greece. The talent that they have at hand is fantastic. Cristiano Ronaldo has made over 110 appearances for his country, but he is not the only player that I'll be hanging the hopes of the nation on. A strong defence, consisting of the likes of Pepe and Fábio Coentrão, both team-mates of Ronaldo at Real Madrid, as well as a midfield containing players such as João Moutinho and Nani show the quality of the squad. In the World Cup year, I will aim to reach the Semi Finals in Brazil, at the very least. Then I will push on in an attempt for global dominance.
The manager that I will be playing as is none other than Spanish footballer, and Real Madrid legend, Fernando Morientes. The former striker played for Spain no less than 47 times during his career, scoring 27 goals in the process. He has had spells with other top European clubs, including Liverpool and Marseille. He has no experience in football management, but I am sure that, with the squad available to me, I will be able to achieve success.
