Ricardo Quaresma

Portugal never lacks wingers... Along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Simão, Figo or Boa Morte, the portuguese World Cup squad may include FC Porto's superstar, Ricardo Quaresma. Ricardo plays in both right and left and he's recently developed a peculiar skill: something the portuguese call "trivela", that consists in crossing with the outside part of his right foot. The famous squad's number 10 is now 22 years-old and, after growing up in Sporting's frutuous academy (Cristiano Ronaldo, Hugo Viana and, more recently, João Moutinho and Nani are other examples of it) he was bought by Frank Rijkaard on his first year in spanish Barcelona. Ricardo didn't stay more than that single season mostly because his teamwork just wasn't 'Barcelonable"; he loves playing for the audience, catching the eye on marvelous technique demonstrations on every single game. Quaresma is difficult to beat one-on-one and his crossing and teamwork are improving enormously. Soon you'll be hearing from him again, but for now you may see him here, in a 2005/06 best of.

I think Ricardo Quaresma should be on the team he has Skill,Flare and A Good Shot and he can replace Figo and Ronaldo if they so happen to struggle.

However Boa Morte has paid his dues and at 28,needs to be on the NT because he is making a mark.

As for Simao he could be the odd man out but you know Scolari.

I had a chance to watch him train when Barca was in the US. Too bad Rijkaard didn't want him but he'd be a great buy for Real Madrid cause right now we lack true wingers.

First let me show my colours. I am not a fan of Quaresma. In my view he gets lost in flashes of skill without serious objectivity. The kind of player that looks good when things are going well, but that cannot turn a game around.

And at the moment you'd have to go with Scolari. The performances in the european under-21 by all the portuguese stars including Quaresma has been pathetic. With all the potential available you'd have to make the case for none of them being yet at the point that they can take it to the next level in the A squad.

So in this case, credit to Scolari.
