Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
There will be fireworks when Bosnia & Herzegovina and Portugal lock horns in a highly-anticipated Euro 2024 qualifier on Monday evening. The Balkan Dragons desperately needed a win against Liechtenstein and they managed to get one, with the team keeping their qualifying hopes alive. As Portugal have already booked their place at the next year’s European Championship finals, home win should definitely be considered. Barring any fresh injury worries, new Bosnia boss Savo Milosevic is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Liechtenstein.
A Selecao, on the other hand, managed to keep their 100% record in Group J intact thanks to a 3-2 win over Slovakia, but seeing that their job is already done, we are tempted to put our money on the underdogs this time out. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a brace in Friday’s triumph, while Barcelona summer signing Joao Felix is pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Cristiano Ronaldo):
Cristiano Ronaldo is considered one of the world’s best football players. The Portuguese ace was born on 5 February, 1985 in Funchal, Madeira and he played for the likes of Andorinha, Nacional and Sporting during his youth career. CR7 made his Sporting debut in Primeira Liga on 7 October, 2002, scoring two goals in a 3-0 win over Moreirense.
Manchester United scouts spotted him and one year later he joined the Old Trafford outfit. Ronaldo became the most expensive teenager in the history of the Premier League and he received the number 7 shirt. He quickly established himself as the team’s key player and it has to be noted that he won three consecutive Premier League trophies with the Red Devils (2006/2007, 2007/2008, 2008/2009). In 2008 he helped the Old Trafford outfit beat Chelsea in the Champions League final, scoring for Alex Ferguson’s troops in the regular time.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 and he helped the Spanish giants with two Champions League trophies. In 2016 he won the European Championship trophy with Portugal. The Real Madrid ace has two Golden Ball awards (2013, 2014).
