Rui Jorge Names Unrecognizable Squad

Brand new Portuguese Under-21 National Team coach, Rui Jorge, has named his first squad as head coach. With many of the former U-21 members aged out, a brand-new crop of players are set to take their place. With just five of the twenty three players ever having played for the U-21 team, this squad is completely new. Though I do not know many of the names on the list, players such as David Simao, Fredy, Abel, Andre Almeida, and Wilson stand out as players that fully deserve this call-up due to their good form. Here’s the complete list:

Belenenses: Abel, André Almeida, and Fredy
CD Pinhalnovense: André Martins
CD Fátima: João Pereira
Deportivo da Coruña: Dinis
Everton FC: João Silva
FC Paços de Ferreira: David Simão
FC Vizela: Hugo Lopes
GD Chaves: Edu
GD Ribeirão: João Faria and Ricardo Martins
GD Tourizense: Ruca
Marítimo: Ruben
Olympique Lyonnais: Anthony Lopes
SC Beira-Mar: Wilson
SC Braga: Cristiano Figueiredo and Dani
Servette FC: Pedro Mendes
UD Leiria: Amado
Varzim SC: Hugo Costa
VVV Venlo: Jorge Chula and Josué
