Diogo Dalot on Euros call-up Portugal 15th June 2021

The full-back is yet to play for his senior national team, although he has represented his country in competitions for the Under-17s, Under-19s and Under-20s. His call-up came after Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo was forced to withdraw from the squad on Sunday, following a positive COVID-19 test.


Dalot joined up with his Portugal team-mates – including club colleague Bruno Fernandes. Speaking in Budapest, where the Seleção play their first game against Hungary this afternoon, the 22-year-old admitted to reporters that he’d been surprised by the call.

“It was an odd situation,“ explained Diogo. ”I was on holiday and was just going into a restaurant when I received the call.
