Barcelona new-boy Francisco Trincao has been called into the Portugal squad for the first time for fixtures against Sweden and Croatia.

The 20-year-old, who is currently at Barcelona for pre-season training, joins Nelson Semedo in Fernando Santos’ squad.

Portugal take on Croatia in Porto on September 5 in the Nations League and head to Stockholm three days later.

Trincao arrived from Braga at the end of the season and is set to be officially presented as a Barcelona player at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
