Portugal Euro 2016 squad

The Portuguese pronunciation given here is that of typical European Portuguese. English approximations of these are given in parentheses for illustrative purposes—in reality, Portuguese names are most often pronounced in English in accordance with the usual English spelling-to-sound rules, and it would probably not be advisable to imitate the Portuguese pronunciation too closely when saying these names within an English-speaking audience.

Contemporary European Portuguese pronunciation tends to elide unstressed vowels much more than is indicated below. For example, Ricardo [ʁi.ˈkaɾ.ðu] comes out more like [ʁi.ˈkaɾðʷ] in current everyday pronunciation, as if it were ‘Ricard’; Soares [ˈswa.ɾɨʃ] becomes [ˈswaɾʃ], as if it were ‘Soars’. Since final unstressed -e [ɨ] is usually dropped, it is treated as such in the English approximations below.

Raphaël Guerreiro, Anthony Lopes and Adrien Silva were born in France and have French given names, pronounced in French [ʁa.fa.ɛl][ɑ̃.tɔ.ni] and [a.dʁi.ɛ̃] respectively. Pepe was born in Brazil, and in Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation is called [ˈpɛ.pi] (English approximation PEP-ee [ˈpɛp.i]). As he is a Brazilian-born member of the Portuguese national team, one could justifiably pronounce his name in English either as ‘peppy’ following the Brazilian pronunciation or as ‘pep’ following the European Portuguese pronunciation.
