Cancelo, Dias and Silva confirmed in Portugal World Cup squad

Manchester City trio Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva have been included in Portugal’s World Cup squad.

All three players have become integral parts of Pep Guardiola’s squad this season, which has also been reflected on the international stage under Fernando Santos.  

Between them they have 148 caps for their nation, with the classy midfielder possessing the most with 72.

Silva has, perhaps understandably, also scored the most between them with eight goals but is closely followed by Cancelo who has scored seven.

Meanwhile Dias has found the net twice, both coming in a 3-2 Nations League victory over Croatia.  

Portugal have been placed in Group H in Qatar and will face Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea and will be looking to add a first World Cup crown to their EURO 2016 title.
