Well I don't know if it is much of a nickname or if it is one, but Portugal is usually called the Golden Generation. Well this squad atleast, since most of the players on the team were on that squad that took the World Youth Championship cup in 1991. Though some players that are on the squad weren't part of that squad, they still call it the Golden Generation.
