Football is an integral part of the life of many Portuguese and it is by far the most popular sport. Apart from past international triumphs involving Eusebio and co., the string of honours of Portuguese football is reflected primarily in successes achieved by clubs and youth teams. This shows that the association is carrying out constructive development work and that young players mature into internationally renowned names in clubs. This youth development work has been bearing fruit since 1989, when their U-20 team was crowned world champion and their U-16s became European champions. Here are some enlightening facts: U-20 world champions in 1989 and 1991, U-18 European champions in 1994 and 1999, U-17 European champions in 2003, U-16 European champions in 1989, 1995, 1996 and 2000 - simply a brilliant record. Little wonder then that football fans can recite names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Paulo Futre, João Pinto, Rui Costa, Luis Figo and many more at the drop of a hat.

UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
