Key player - Portugal

In Portugal, the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo stands out. The 37-year-old Portuguese player has been the star of the season for Manchester United, scoring 24 goals, despite the fact that it was not the best performance of the English team. His role in the national team is unobjectionable, because only in the last World Cup cycle he scored 27 goals with his country's jersey, being present in all official tournaments and in some friendly matches.
12:25 PM2 years ago

Key player - Spain

In Spain, the presence of Álvaro Morata is unacceptable. The 29-year-old player comes from an acceptable season with Juventus, where he scored 12 goals, although it was not the best, his goals contributed in the midst of a poor campaign of the vecchia signora. In the Spanish national team he has been a bulwark in the area in recent times, scoring 12 goals during the last World Cup cycle, counting friendlies and Euro and World Cup qualifiers.
