Cristiano Ronaldo headlines Portugal's Euro 2016 roster

Tuesday May 17th, 2016

Cristiano Ronaldo will lead Portugal at Euro 2016 after being named as one of the 23 players on manager Fernando Santos's roster.

Ronaldo, who will play for another Champions League title later this month with Real Madrid, and other veterans like Joao Moutinho, Nani, Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho and Ricardo Quaresma are joined by younger talents William Carvalho and Renato Sanches, the latter of which just moved to Bayern Munich from Benfica in a $40 million transfer

Ronaldo is Portugal's all-time leading goal scorer, with 56 tallies in his international career.

He'll look to add to that total when Portugal plays against qualifying darling Iceland, Hungary and Austria in a balanced Group F.

Here is Portugal's squad in full:

GOALKEEPRS: Rui Patrício (Sporting), Anthony Lopes (Lyon), Eduardo (Dínamo Zagreb)

DEFENDERS: Vieirinha (Wolfsburgo), Cédric (Southampton), Pepe (Real Madrid), Ricardo Carvalho (Mónaco), Bruno Alves (Fenerbahçe), José Fonte (Southampton), Eliseu (Benfica), Raphael Guerreiro (Lorient)

MIDFIELDERS: William Carvalho (Sporting), Danilo Pereira (FC Porto), João Moutinho (Mónaco), Renato Sanches (Benfica), Adrien Silva (Sporting), André Gomes (Valência), João Mário (Sporting)

FORWARDS: Rafa Silva (SC Braga), Ricardo Quaresma (Besiktas), Nani (Fenerbahçe), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Éder (Lille)
