Players to Watch at the 2016 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament.


Good news for Portugal fan because according to sportingnews.com,  “Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could be an option for Portugal’s 2016 Olympic soccer team the president of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) says.”


Born: February 5, 1985 (age 31), Santo António, Portugal
Height: 6′ 1″
Weight: 176 lbs
Salary: 15 million GBP (2015)
Current teams: Real Madrid C.F. (#7 / Forward), Portugal national football team (#7 / Forward)

This would be great for Portugal because not only is Cristiano Ronaldo devilishly hansom but he’s nothing short of a super star in the game of soccer. Cristiano Ronaldo is a blessing for any team because he is a very versatile player. Currently Ronaldo plays on Real Madrid C.F.  but also has a spot on the Portuguese national football team both playing as a forward. A lot can be said for Ronaldo because he is such a good player and he has won more than 40 individual awards including a plethora of best player of the year awards from all over. He is certainly a force to be reckoned with however, don’t get your hopes to high because right now it is only a possibility.

A player who is much more likly to be at the 2016 Olympic games is Raphaël Guerreiro.
Guerreiro plays as a defender for FC Lorient but as also earned a spot on the Portuguese national football team. Even though Guerreiro is a defender, he might take a shot or two at goal so keep your eyes peeled.
