This Saturday (8:45pm CEST), the Seleção will have the opportunity to continue their momentum in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers, with a home match against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Roberto Martinez must remain on the same guiding principle.
The return of the Seleção. A few months after the successful debut of the new strongman of the Portuguese national team, Roberto MartinezAnd Cristiano Ronaldo His family will have the opportunity to continue with two new encounters. The Portuguese national team will host Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday, before traveling to Iceland three days later for the fourth day of this qualifying stage for the 2024 European Nations Cup.
Do we take (almost) the same?
For this second international window, Roberto Martinez It will likely retain the same thoughts that were observed last March. Regarding the game system, then we must find 3-4-3, which will inevitably serve as a working basis for the start of the Catalan technician’s project.
In terms of gamers used, again, we can expect that Roberto Martinez They would like to respect a certain logic compared to the previous international window. In central defence, we have to be able to count on period Danilo Pereira Based on Robin Diaswhose strong performance has tempted the coach in recent matches. baby He could find his place in the starting lineup, at the expense of A Antonio Silva who, however, did not deserve his first steps in the Seleção.
in the right lane, Joao Cancelo He showed himself to be particularly comfortable in this new piston role of the 3-4-3 of the Roberto Martinez, during the great victory over Liechtenstein last March (4-0). A great performance, which should give him a certain edge over the competition he has Diogo Dalot, clearly more comfortable in a 4-man defense. The full-back currently on loan at Bayern Munich must start the next match, just like Raphael Guerrerowhich will benefit from the lack of Nuno Mendez Trying to score points in the eyes of his new coach.
Finally, in the midfield we must find the duo made up of Bruno Fernandez And Joao Ballinha. I started in the first two meetings of the era Roberto MartinezIt seems that the Premier League players have provided the necessary guarantees for the Catalans to continue on this path.
As far as the offensive sector is concerned, there is room for doubt. Especially for the player who will be accompanying Raphael Guerrero In the left lane for the Selecao on Saturday against Bosnia. whether Bernardo Silva And Cristiano Ronaldo Should logically start the next match in the Seleção, questions remain about the possible duration Joao Felix.
If he had preferred Rafael Liao and l Diogo Jota During the last rally, the young attacking player who trained at Benfica had a bit of a complication in the past few months at Chelsea, being loaned out for the entire second part of the season. It is a condition that can be so harmful Joao Felixwhether Roberto Martinez Came to test an alternative option on Saturday.
Possible composition of the Seleção national team against Bosnia and Herzegovina:
Pepe – Ruben Dias – Danilo
Cancelo – Fernandez – Balinha – Guerrero
Bernardo Silva – Ronaldo – Joao Felix
