All that is needed is to link the pages together and to buy the domain name...oh yeah...the history section is the only section not done. I allocated the duties to Ola and Razor...I have not received anything.....so if I get nothing by June 2...I guess June 1 I will type up my own history....

Sorry I have taken so long! Right now is a horrible time for moi. Report cards and things!

However, I can't track any info about the the team's history in English. I have come across the stats and history at www.fpf.pt but it is all in Portuguese Unfortunately I don't have the time to translate everything into English. Any suggestions?

I found this brief history on the web, which I didn't write, however it only goes to about 1991. Razor could you rewrite it and finish it off? Pretty please!


HISTORY
The first major tournament Portugal participated in was the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. Portugal were eliminated by Egypt after beating Costa Rica and Yugoslavia. Then, more than twenty years later, in 1961, Portugal won the European Championship U-19 tournament although the competition hadn't the prestige it has today and few countries participated. Five years later, the Portuguese squad made their best international showing ever: the 1966 World Cup in England. With great players like Eusebio (World Cup top scorer with 9 goals), Coluna, Simoes (now assistant coach), Jose Aguas and Torres, Portugal won their group beating Hungary, Bulgaria and Pele's Brazil (the only time Pele didn't win a World Cup he played in). Then in the quarter finals, Portugal beat South Korea, coming from 3-0 down to win 5-3 with four Eusebio goals. The English public were spellbound by the Portuguese players, especially Eusebio, the "black panther" who is still remembered by many fans all over the World.
In the semi-finals, Portugal had to play England in Liverpool where the Portuguese had played all their previous games. However, the game was moved to Wembley a few days before it was played. After being in Liverpool for almost a month, Portugal had to go to a new city and to a new stadium. Portugal lost the game 2-1 but created the impression that could had gone to the final and beaten Germany. Portugal finished third after beating the Soviet Union.
In 1984, Portugal returned to the important competitions: the European Championship in France, the only one that Portugal have so far participated in. The qualifying group saw Portugal finish first, ahead of the Soviet Union, a major candidate for the title.
In France, Portugal drew their first two games: West Germany (0-0), Spain (1-1) and won the decisive game against Romania (1-0) with a goal in the final minutes. Portugal finished the group in second place with 4 points. Unfortunately, Portugal had to meet the host country France in the semi finals (as it happened in WC 66 against England). The game finished 1-1 and went into extra time. Portugal took an early lead but conceded two goals in the last ten minutes to be eliminated 3-2.
Two years later, Portugal miraculously qualified for WC86 in Mexico. To qualify Portugal needed to win in West Germany and hope that Sweden lost to Czechoslovakia. Incredibly, this is exactly what heppened with a glorious strike from Carlos Manuel winning the game in Germany and putting Portugal into second place. In the finals, Portugal finished bottom of their group despite beating England 1-0 in the first match.
Two years later, a project developed by Carlos Queiros and former WC66 player Jose Augusto involving the national youth teams gave Portugal lots of titles and most of the players in today's national side are from this young generation, making the Portuguese team, one of the youngest in Europe.
Portugal won the U-19 European Championship in 1988, the U-20 World Championship in 1989 and 1991, and finished many other tournaments in the top three. The stars of these young teams now play for the best club sides in Europe; Fernando Couto, Paulo Sousa and Rui Costa all play in Italy while Figo plays for Barcelona in Spain.
Portugal are currently the Under 17 European champions, the Under 19 European Champions and finished 3rd in the last Under 20 World Cup ensuring a stream of good players for the future.

Marcoa, the only section that can be accessed from the home page is the AA section. None of the others connect.
