Ribeiro and Sa Called Up Early


Portugal National Team coach Paulo Bento has called up Joao Ribeiro and Orlando Sa early for the Seleccao’s upcoming game against Spain. Joao Ribeiro has been in top form for Vitoria Guimaraes, attracting the attention of clubs like Fulham and CSKA Moscow. Orlando Sa, who is currently on loan at Nacional from Porto, has also been impressing in the Liga Zon Sagres. If you will recall, Orlando Sa scored a hat-trick three years ago for the Portugal U-21 team against Spain. Maybe Bento is hoping for more of the same. Portugal face Spain in a friendly match on November 17 in an effort to strengthen their joint 2018(I think) World Cup bid. Vieirinha and Andre Santos are two other player who I think deserve call-ups, just in case you guys were wondering…
