Portugal is India´s favourite team, immediately after the home team.
We hope that our team and players can inspire a new generation of young Indian footballers fulfilling their absolute potential, promote a healthy lifestyle powered by sports and nutrition, and continue to delight our millions of fans in India who, no matter the distance, are always supporting us.
