Rolando

Born in Cape Verde, Rolando moved to Portugal when he was just 14 and never had any doubts that he would commit his international future to his adopted country once he became a naturalized citizen in 2006 and now he gets his chance to make a debut appearance in a major tournament.


He starred in the FC Porto side that swept all before them in the 2010/11 season as led by the youthful Andre Villas-Boas, they capped a clean sweep of trophies on home soil with a fine victory in the Europa League.


A non-playing member of the Portugal side that flattered to deceive at the 2010 World Cup finals, this experienced operator will be hoping he is given a chance to shine by boss Paulo Bento at Euro 2012. With a host of Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Liverpool said to be coveting his services, a handful of sparkling displays this summer could just transform his career.
