Santos is a Portuguese leader who led prestigious Portuguese clubs such as FC Porto, Benfica and Sporting. He also played in Greece, including AEK Athens and Panatanaikos, and worked as the head coach of the Greek national soccer team for about four years from 2010.

Then, in 2014, he took the helm of the Portuguese national soccer team as a replacement for head coach Paulo Bento. It wasn’t long before it made a big achievement. It won Portugal’s Euro 2016 title under Santos. He also became the first champion by lifting the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Nations League (UCL) title in the 2018-19 season.

After that, it began to shake little by little. Portugal failed to get a direct ticket to the finals after losing to Serbia in the European qualifying round for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Fortunately, he reached the finals through the playoffs. In the group stage, he advanced to the round of 16 by winning two games early against Ghana and Uruguay.

However, he was eliminated from the quarterfinals and finished the tournament. Shortly afterwards, the Portuguese Football Association announced its breakup with Santos. Santos quickly succeeded in getting a job again. Bento also took the helm of the Polish national soccer team, which was mentioned as a candidate.

Although he performed less than expected in the World Cup, Santos’ first goal was to advance to the Euro 2024 finals, which had significant titles such as winning Euro 2016 and winning the UNL first championship. If he advances to the Euro 2024 finals, he took the helm on the condition that his contract will be extended until the 2026 North Korea-Central America World Cup.

But it got twisted from the start. He made his debut in Poland after leaving the Czech Republic during the A match in March. It was also the first match of the Euro 2024 qualifying round. However, Poland, led by coach Santos, lost 1-3. Fortunately, he succeeded in rebounding by winning Albania 1-0, and also won 1-0 against Germany in the A-match friendly match in June.

However, he has recently played three Euro 2024 qualifying matches and recorded one win and two losses. They defeated the Faroe Islands 2-0, but lost 2-3 to Moldova, and suffered a 0-2 shock defeat in an away match against Albania on the 11th. Moldova is ranked 178th in the FIFA rankings and Albania is ranked 66th. It was an unconvincing defeat for Poland in 26th place.

In the end, Santus left the Polish national soccer team after six games.
