Ticket Down is a reputable source for discounted tickets for the friendly soccer match between Portugal and Ireland. With just weeks remaining until the 32 teams taking part in the 2014 World Cup travel to the South American host nation of Brazil, that means that teams won’t have as much time to prepare their strategies and lineups. Rosters are now all set for each nation and the final preparations need to be made on the pitch, something Portugal will look to do when they take on Ireland in their final pre-World Cup game on Tuesday, June 10 from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Which stars step onto the pitch for Portugal remain to be seen, but fans will hope to see the world’s most exciting player, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese national team is ranked as the No. 3 team in the word by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, trailing only Spain and Germany. The team is led by the world player of the year, Ronaldo, as well as other popular athletes including Helder Postiga, Raul Meireles, Bruno Alves and Rui Patricio. With the team looking to avoid injury for the world’s most popular soccer tournament, these stars may not suit up for Portugal against Ireland, but fans should still be excited at the chance to see them perform.
Ireland is currently ranked as the 66th best team in the world and while they are not travelling to Brazil, would enjoy giving Portugal something to think about on their long flight to South America. The Irish team is led by Robbie Keane, who has 131 caps and 63 goals, Kevin Doyle, who has 56 caps and 12 goals, and John O’Shea, who has 96 caps.
Since losing to Brazil last September in a international friendly, Portugal has gone 4-0-2 with wins against Luxemburg, Sweden (x2) and Cameroon, and draws with Israel and Greece. They are playing in the United States twice in the next week, first at Gillette Stadium against Mexico on June 6 and then this matchup with Ireland.
MetLife Stadium is one of the newest venues used by the National Football League and is home to the New York Giants and New York Jets. The venue opened in 2010 and has already been home to many memorable events in sports, including WrestleMania 29 and most recently, Super BowlXLVIII. This soccer match between Portugal and Ireland will feature a large crowd.
