|| Portugal qualified for their
first FIFA World Cup finals in 1966 and caused
something of a stir on their debut appearance.
Trailing 3-0 to Korea DPR in the quarter-finals,
the Portuguese recovered to win 5-3, thanks
in large part to four goals from Eusebio.
||In their 1966 semi-final Portugal fell 2-1
to the eventual world champions England. In
the play-off for third place they beat the
USSR by the same score. Eusebio was the top
goal scorer of the tournament with nine goals
to his name.
|| In 1986 the Portuguese packed their bags
after the first round despite a win against
England. The same fate awaited them in 2002.
They were eliminated in the first round after
an unexpected 1-0 loss to Korea Republic in
their final group game.
