Rui Patricio

With Eduardo relegated to bench warming duties at club level, this youthful keeper took his chance to take centre-stage in the latter stages of Portugal’s Euro 2012 campaign and he will head into the finals as coach Paulo Bento’s first choice. It was hardly a surprise when he got the call as this combination of player and coach worked well together when Bento was Sporting boss.


Patricio has enjoyed a fine season between the sticks for Sporting this season, playing his part in the Europa League successes against Lazio and Manchester City and adding to his growing reputation with some solid displays at international level.


Manchester United were rumoured to be tracking Patricio before they signed David De Gea last summer and it may be that this young keeper becomes the subject of transfer attention if he makes his mark at Euro 2012.
