Goalkeepers: Eduardo, Quim, Rui Patrício

Defenders: Bruno Alves, Fábio Coentrão, Rolando, João Pereira, Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho, Sílvio, Eliseu

Midfielders: André Santos, João Moutinho, Raul Meireles, Rúben Micael, Miguel Veloso, Paulo Machado

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Danny, Hélder Postiga, Hugo Almeida, Nani, Silvestre Varela

Rui Jorge, former team mate of Bento at Sporting, also announced his U21 squad for their games against Moldova and France. Included in that squad is Cédric Soares (currently out on loan at Académica), Diogo Rosado (on loan at Feirense), Wilson Eduardo (on loan at Olhanense), Pedro Mendes (currently on loan at Real Madrid Castilla, although likely to stay) and André Martins.
