P.S.N.L's mid-season Starting Eleven





The Portuguese league has just passed the half season mark after going into the new year and we at PSNL take a look at the best players by position at the halfway point of the Portuguese season.  It is never an easy list to come up with and unfortunately some players will miss out on making our list because you can only have eleven on the field. The formation used for selection is a 4-3-3.

This is PSNLs starting eleven at the mid point of the Portuguese season.










Antonio Adan - Keeper (Sporting)
