With Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal defines the squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers

Coach Roberto Martínez released, this Monday, the call-up of the Portugal national team for the next games of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

The novelty is due to Toti Gomes. The commander explained why the 24-year-old Wolverhampton defender was called up.

“He is a very interesting player, he is different from the others. He’s physical, very strong, a left-handed player. His performances at Wolverhampton were very good. It’s not a situation of excluding players, it’s about deciding on different aspects. We need to play with different abilities and I think Toti offers that”, he said.

Other returns on the list also include midfielder Renato Sanches, from Paris Saint-Germain, winger Nélson Semedo, from Wolverhampton, and striker Ricardo Horta, from Sporting.

Portugal has its first match on the 17th of next month, against Bosnia and Herzegovina, at Estádio da Luz. On the 20th, the team faces Iceland in Reyjavik.
