Many questioned whether Portugal’s decision to bring in Roberto Martinez was the correct decision, as the former Everton boss struggled throughout his tenure with a Golden Age of Belgium talent. However, he will get a second opportunity with one of the best international sides on the planet.
His first big decision saw him name Cristiano Ronaldo within the traveling squad for the upcoming international fixtures, with many believing that the forward’s international career was over. But, whether Martinez will name the former Manchester United star in his first starting elevens remains to be seen.

The race for the second spot in Group J looks set to be fascinating over the next nine months or so. However, Luxembourg could be a nation that surprises a few people over the qualifying campaign. The nation, coached by Luc Holtz, is yet to qualify for a major tournament, but they enjoyed a steady Nations League campaign in 2022 to rise to their best ranking in the competition.
They finished second in Division C1, but they picked up three wins from six matches, and only suffered a single defeat. However, this is a significant step up in opposition on Sunday.
Luxembourg’s home form will be key to any chance that they have of reaching EURO 2024. However, we struggle to see past a talented Portuguese side picking up a second straight win on Sunday.
