    This Portugal squad is actually 100x better than the previous one.

    Yet that 2016 squad won the tournament while this one went out before the quarters (think no Portuguese side has been eliminated before last 8 of Euros before this tournament)

    Belgium would’ve truly earned it if they win the tournament though- Portugal + Italy + France/Spain (most likely)
