Portugal have called-up Cedric Soares for international duty for the first time in three years.
The 29-year-old gets the nod for the upcoming World Cup qualification matches against Azerbaijan, Serbia and Luxembourg having started eight out of Arsenal’s last 10 Premier League games.

Signed as cover for right-back Hector Bellerin, he’s demonstrated his versatility since the turn of the year by playing five of his recent starts at left-back.
Cedric is no stranger to the
Wolves Portugal senior squad. He already has 33 caps to his name and was part of the side that won the European Championships in France in 2016.
On the one hand, we congratulate him. On the other, we share his pain at having to spend time with that glowing ballbag, Ronaldo.
