Martinez, Portugal Target Euro Glory


Portugal will head to UEFA EURO 2024 with the goal of conquering the continent for the second time and they will do so with renewed hope. Head coach Roberto Martinez has enjoyed a highly positive first year-and-a-half in the job and is helping to usher in a bright new generation of Portuguese talent.

A superb run of form, which saw the nation win all ten matches they played in 2023, will be put to the ultimate test soon enough. The UEFA European Championship, which runs from 14 June to 14 July, could set the tempo for the subsequent European qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 26™, and possibly for the World Cup itself.

“I love the feeling of waking up in the morning and having a mission to complete. I am exactly where I want to be right now. I have a unique opportunity and I’m proud to give it my all to bring us success at the EURO,” Martinez told Portuguese news agency Lusa.

So what has changed since the Spaniard’s predecessor Fernando Santos (EURO 2016 champion) departed from the Portugal post? Here FIFA analyses the new approach adopted by the team since the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and explains why it has rekindled expectations.
