Portugal will arrive at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ with the weighty expectations of demanding coach Carlos Queiroz on their shoulders. The former Manchester United assistant coach has tipped his side to be among the final four at the 11 June - July 11 finals in South Africa.
"Portugal is one of the favourites in the race for one of these places," insisted Queiroz. "World Cup history has shown us that there are always three big favourites in the semi-finals. Portugal and some 15 other teams will be soliciting the outsider's place."
