  1. Talk about “boring” Portugal your list is not only very boring but repetitive!!!! B4 criticizing & being so negatively biased towards Portugal (don’t worry… they’re happy… ;)) maybe you should look for more positive stats you may surprise yourself!!… Especially being a small country with less players to pick from and most likely the poorest in Europe with the least financial facilities yet the least crime/fraud! Having said that, they have great if not the greatest football trainers and players!! Concentrate on your ‘premiere’ league stats consisting of foreigners thus why the most watched!!!
