Defenders

Bonucci was arguably the best defender of the tournament

Leanardo Bonucci and Pepe form the menacing centre-back pairing for this team. Bonucci was arguably the best defender of this tournament, cutting out any threats effectively with his brilliant positioning skills and tackling. 

Pepe was the rock on which the Portuguese defence was built and the most solid defensive team in the tournament had an excellent leader in Real Madrid’s star, Pepe. Although the Portuguese centre-back missed the semi-final, he put in an accomplished performance in the final, playing a major role in his side keeping a clean sheet against France.

Raphael Guerriero was the most consistent left-back of the tournament

Raphael Guerriero put in some solid performances in the initial matches, but he really burst into life in the semi-final, where he provided an amazing assist and was solid defensively throughout the match. The young Portuguese left-back was also very good in the final and always provided an attacking outlet on the flanks for Portugal.

The right-back position is taken by Bayern Munich’s young star Joshua Kimmich. The youngster kept out a more experienced Benedikt Howedes out of the side with his good performances. Be it last ditch tackles, or providing dangerous crosses into the boxes, Kimmich put in accomplished performances right through this tournament.
