Portuguese legend Rui Costa is backing Portugal to win Euro 2008. The former AC Milan superstar has said that the team can go all the way to the finals and win unlike what happened in Euro 2004 with the shocking loss to Greece.
Rui Costa backed his reasoning by saying that the team is better prepared and more respected now than ever before. He feels that there has been a change of mentality and that the players must think as a team instead of as individuals.
Lastly, Rui Costa noted that a lot of the future success of Portugal will depend on Cristiano Ronaldo maintaining his outstanding form that saw him score 41 goals in all competition for Manchester United.
