Brazilian World Cup winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari or ‘Big Phil’ as he was dubbed by the media while guiding Brazil to World Cup glory in Korea/Japan 2002 has guided Portugal to their fourth World Cup Finals appearance in Germany.
Portugal could not have been more impressive in qualification winning nine of their 12 matches as they finished seven points clear of their nearest rivals Slovakia.
Scolari, who took over the reins of Portugal after they were bundled out of the 2002 World Cup Finals in Korea/Japan guided Portugal to the final of the 2004 European Championship on home soil where they lost to the giant killers Greece.
A very skillful outfit who will be very easy on the eyes to watch this summer in Germany with Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo along with Inter Milan winger and FIFA World Player of the Year in 2001 Luis Figo the standout performers. He can be a very lucrative bet to make for any time scorer during any of the games during the tournament. Another great bet is playing some new online casinos.
Technically they are more than capable of taking home the major prize but it’s questionable if they posses the temperament needed at the top level.
