Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Francisco Trincao has been called-up to the Portugal squad for their upcoming matches, according to Diario de Noticias.
Trincao has been capped six times previously but originally missed out on the squad for the friendly against Qatar and their World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
However, fitness problems for Domingos Duarte and Rafa Silva have seen Trincao, Rafael Leao and Jose Fonte brought in as replacements.
The 21 year-old joins midfield team-mates Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho in Fernando Santos’ ranks.
How has Trincao done so far this season?
Trincao has yet to open his Premier League account since joining Wolves on a season-long loan from FC Barcelona, with his only goal coming in a Carabao Cup rout of Nottingham Forest in August.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the Portugal news, and here’s what supporters made of it.
These Wolves fans question Trincao call-up
“Must be desperate, he’s been bang average”
“How, he’s awful”
“Can’t have watched the Newcastle game”
“For doing what exactly?”
“Might see if I have Portuguese heritage, I might be able to get a game for them as well if this is the case”
“He should smack the crossbar from point blank range more often, it’s working”
In other news, this Wolves man has earned praise from an MOTD pundit.
