Portugal National Team
The Portugal national team is perhaps best known for their incredible playing skills. However, those skills have not led to a prize in some time. Even during 2004 and 2006 (UEFA EURO and Germany, respectively), they were only finalists, without quite making the run for the championship. In addition, Portugal has never made it past the semi-finals of a World Cup 2010 championship, so if they should manage a win in 2010, it should be cause for incredible celebration in the Portuguese camp.
