Bernardo Silva is the big hope of the Portuguese national team, which had struggled to find a world-class technical playmaker for the last couple of years. With the team loaded with skillful, tricky, and quick attacking players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, and Ricardo Quaresma, the team needed a technical player like Bernardo to add guile and precision to the attacking play of the team. Silva has also shown that he has the ability to add cohesion to the team play and take it to the next level. The fact that he is coached by Pep Guardiola at the club level will only improve his technical game.
