An ever-present in Portugal’s youth teams, Andre Silva was 20 when he made his senior international debut in September 2016 and has since become a first choice for coach Fernando Santos. The front man played in every match at the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 and in the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, with his nine goals in the preliminaries accounting for nearly a quarter of Portugal’s overall tally.

Despite his age, Silva is the perfect foil for Cristiano Ronaldo. A gifted finisher and passer of the ball, he has an excellent understanding of his role in exploiting space and supporting his fellow forwards.
