Portugal

Portugal is easily the highest-ranked team in the FIFA world rankings in Group F at No. 6. This is likely the last major international tournament for 39-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo, who has hinted that he will be too old to play in the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Ronaldo holds the world record for international goals, scoring 130 for Portugal since making his debut in 2003. He is also the all-time capped player in men’s international soccer having played 207 games. Ronaldo is playing in his sixth European Championship and led Portugal to the title in 2016. No one in history has played more Euro games (25) or scored more goals (14) – including two goals vs. Czechia. Ronaldo is the -135 anytime goalscorer favourite Monday. He scored twice in the team’s final warm-up, a 3-0 win over Ireland on June 11 and also had 10 goals in nine Euro 2024 qualifying matches. Ronaldo also scored a Saudi Pro League record 35 goals for Al Nassr in his first full season with the club. This is manager Robert Martinez’s first major tournament with Portugal, which lost in the Round of 16 at Euro 2020 to Belgium.

Czechia

Czechia, coached by Ivan Hašek, is ranked 36th in the world. Hašek, a long-time former national team midfielder, was only hired in January after predecessor Jaroslav Šilhavý quit over criticism of the team’s play in the qualifying matches. This is Hašek’s second stint at the helm of Czechia, as he also oversaw five games in 2009. As Czechoslovakia, it won the 1976 European Championship and also reached the quarterfinals as the Czech Republic in 2020 (technically 2021 as the tournament was delayed by COVID), losing 2-1 to Denmark. Patrik Schick, now a star for Bundesliga champion Bayer Leverkusen, tied for the most goals at Euro 2020 with five and is +350 for an anytime goal Tuesday. Including friendlies and qualifying, Czechia enters on a seven-match unbeaten streak (one draw). It beat North Macedonia 2-1 on June 10 in its final warm-up match. Schick had a goal.
