Rui Patrício and William Carvalho Going to the World Cup

Paulo Bento has announced his final 23-man Portugal squad for the World Cup with Rui Patrício and William Carvalho representing Sporting.

João Mário was in the long list for the squad but did not make the cut but William Carvalho after just 2 caps for the national team has proved just how important he is. Rui Patrício of course will be likely to start in goal for Portugal but will face competition from Eduardo and Europe League hero Beto.

Portugal’s first game will come against favourites Germany on the 16th June at the Fonte Nova in Salvador, Bahia.
