In 2003, the Portuguese Football Federation hired Luiz Felipe Scolari, the former Brazilian head coach who had led the Brazil national football team to win the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Scolari led Portugal to the final of UEFA Euro 2004, where they lost to Greece, and to their second World Cup semi-final in the 2006 World Cup.
Scolari left after the UEFA Euro 2008 and was replaced by Carlos Queiroz. He led Portugal to the second round of the 2010 World Cup before they were defeated by the eventual champions Spain. Because of poor results in the games that would succeed, Queiroz was fired and the Federation hired ex-Sporting Clube de Portugal coach Paulo Bento.
