Last season, FC Porto ended up in third place in Portugal's Premeira Liga division. The top-three finish earned Porto a chance at qualification for the UEFA Champions League-in a playoff where Porto beat French club Lille to earn a slot in the European tournament. While the finish wasn't as strong as Porto's 2012 2013 Premeira Liga win, it was good enough to keep Porto near the top of Portuguese soccer. Now, Porto is back for another season. You can support the club's chances in both the Premeira Liga and the Champions League by purchasing a brand new Porto football shirt 2014 at the Soccer Box online store.
Soccer Box has quite a selection to choose from this year, if you are a fan of FC Porto. Not only do we have stock available for the club's stunning new home and away shirts, but we also have the new pink Porto third jersey 2014 2015. All of these shirts were designed and made by Warrior, which is taking the reigns as Porto's kit manufacturer for the first time ever. For the last 15 years, the club's shirts have been made by Nike.
The Premeira Liga: Where Porto Stands
Champions League qualification, Premeira Liga promise, and brand new soccer shirts-these three things herald the start of FC Porto's 2014 2015 season, a season that is off to a solid start thus far. Five matches into the new Premeira Liga football season, Porto has already won three games and drawn two. The club also has a goal difference of +6 at the moment, having scored seven goals and conceded just one.
Those statistics are strong enough to put Porto in third place on the Premeira Liga table as the league season enters its third month. Currently in the lead is Benfica, last year's championship team. The runner-up position, meanwhile, is filled by a more surprising club: Vitoria de Guimaraes. Last season, Vitoria only barely slipped into the Premeira Liga top 10. Needless to say, many soccer analysts are surprised by the club's great performance so far this year.
Still, while Benfica and Vitoria de Guimaraes may be on top of the Premeira Liga table, the players in the Porto football shirt 2014 still have something on both clubs. So far, Porto has only given up one goal this season. Benfica has surrendered two, while Vitoria has allowed three.
Of course, the Benfica and Vitoria players have both proven more adept than Porto's at finding the back of the net. In five matches, Benfica has scored 12 goals, while Vitoria is right behind at 11. Still, Porto's defense looks as solid as any in the league at this point and could be the team's biggest asset moving forward.
At the start of this year's Premeira Liga, it looks as if the Porto third jersey 2014 2015 is going to prove to be the symbol of the strongest Porto squad in years. After all, the club won its first three matches of the season with shut-out performances against Maritimo, Pacos de Ferreira, and Moreirense.
Those matches also featured major leadership performances from striker and team captain, Jackson Martinez. Martinez has rapidly become the top scorer for his team this season.
A goal in the Maritimo match, the sole point in the 1-0 Pacos de Ferreira win, and a brace of goals in the Moreirense match have collectively marked Martinez as one of the best strikers of the season. He's not just the best striker wearing the Porto third jersey 2014 2015 but one of the best strikers in all of league football.
Martinez was also responsible for his team's only point in a league fixture against Vitoria de Guimaraes. That match ended in a 1-1 final score, Porto's first draw of the season. The second draw came in a scoreless fixture against Boavista, a club promoted to the Premeira Liga just this year.
With Jackson Martinez putting forth such a strong performance and with the defensive side holding strong, Porto FC could easily contend for a Premeira Liga title this year. Cheer for the club by stopping by Soccer Box today and buying a brand new Porto football shirt!
