Fernando Santos Announces Portugal Squad for March Fixtures

Portugal head coach Fernando Santos today announced his 25-man Portugal squad for the upcoming international break.

The European champions will play three FIFA World Cup Qualifiers at the end of March, kicking off against Azerbaijan on the 24th March (a game which has been moved to Turin, Italy) before playing Serbia in Belgrade on the 27th and Luxembourg on the 30th of March in the countries capital.

The U21 squad announcement yesterday gave us a teaser as to who would make the senior squad, given that Pote made the U21 squad but 18-year-old Nuno Mendes didn’t. The fact Pedro Neto was also absent from the U21 squad made it clear that he would be once again called up for senior Seleção duty.

Check out the full squad below!

UPDATE | Due to injury, Rafael Leão & Jota who are featured in the graphic below, have dropped out. FC Porto’s João Mário and Benfica striker Gonçalo Ramos have replaced them.
