The latest PortuGOAL podcast is split into two parts. Firstly, we sift through the debris of Benfica’s Champions League campaign, and in stark contrast speculate how far Porto can go in the competition. We also doff our cap to Vitória Guimarães and their amazing season before discussing which potential January transfer reinforcements are needed by Sporting, Porto and Benfica.
In Part Two it’s the Seleção all the way as we sum up the situation of the national team under new coach Fernando Santos. We assess his decisions to bring in the old guard, to call up a few (too few?) young guns and hear first-hand from Portugal midfielder Tiago and goalkeeper Beto. We finish by pontificating about how Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliance may be having a negative impact on his international team-mates.
