Alright guys, I've never had a successful story on FMScout and I want to change that. I've seen this challenge around on a few FM sites and its really caught my eye. So as of today i will be starting this wonderful challenge.

The Challenge

Basically, the main aim of this challenge is to win more World Cups than Brazil have won. The main rule is that you have to start with a team who haven't ever won a World Cup. So my choice is Portugal, it is possible that I could win the 2018 World Wup as the current squad is decent enough to go on till then. Also i will want to prompt as many regens as possible.

The Manager

For the manager I'm going to go as simple as possible. I have chosen to be myself. Yep Adam from England will take Portugal and be the best ever international manager ever.

Managers Notes

From the game I have a few concerns, or defence isn't the best and we will struggle when we come up against bigger teams with better strike force. The only thing good about this is our attack is such a strong attacking line up. Controlled by the man him self CR7.
We play Serbia and Armenia next in the Euro Qualifiers. Lets hope for some better defence and even better attack.
Good luck! Have fun.
Diazepamll - Ill try :P its gunna be a long ish save. well a minimum of 20 years.

Managers Notes

Like I said after the friendly against Ireland, we need to tighten up at the back. We leaked goals which we shouldn't have against all the three teams we played. We currently sit 3rd in our group with Denmark and Serbia in 1st and second.
Our next game is a friendly trip to Switzerland then onto France. Both winnable games in my opinion
Nice graphics WAF and smooth writing. Serbia is tough opponent. Keep up and you will do it.
Cheers mate
MisterLister - Serbia a good nation with great potential and thanks mate

Managers Notes

These were decent results for friendlies and beating all odds to win France was a personal highlight of my short career so far. Lets hope it continues. Soon it will be youth intake day so there maybe a few fresh faces into the national pool and hopefully so good new defenders to tighten up that defence.

Managers Notes

Absolute brilliant few games. Maicon was defiantly a rock in our defence and scored some good goals too. We play France in a friendly next then the big one. Denmark away. If we win the Denmark game we will be through to my first competition as Portugal manager. Only good times ahead now!
Really nice results, seems that Ronaldo is scoring in sprouts!
Pauker - Yep the results are great! loving this save a lot so far. It seems that all my player are scoring a lot. Its crazy. Ronaldo is out for a month atm so hes missed a friendly but should be back for the Denmark game.

Managers Notes

I guess the lose had to come sometime soon. Rather it be now than in the Euros or in a big qualification game. The big game against Denmark is soon. the team are ready for this one. 1 point will put us through to the Euros.

Managers Notes

Yes! Were through. Both us and Serbia go through to the Euros. Cant wait to manage in my first competitive competition. We have a few friendlies before the Euros and the squad are fired up for it!
Yay, Serbia is through. Nice updates. Congrats on qualifying. Keep it up!
Congrats on qualifying mate now to the title.

Also let's hope Brazil don't win any World Cups during your game or you'll have another to try and top lol.
