Another new coaching appointment, Fernando Santos, has been talking about the challenge he faces with Portugal after replacing Paulo Bento on Wednesday afternoon.

"I want to thank [the Portuguese Football Federation] for the invitation, and for the confidence that is being put in me," the former Greece said at his unveiling. "It is an honour and I am extremely proud to take the helm of the national team and serve my country.

"This is something I always dreamed, a moment of great happiness for me. There is one goal and one goal only: to be in France in 2016. We'll be there, to make the Portuguese people proud."
