Wolves supporters have been left elated at the news that one of their star players Diogo Jota has been called up to the Portugal squad.
This marks the first time the forward has been included in the European champions’ senior squad and fans have been sharing their adulation and praise for him on Twitter.
[email protected]_, @JoaoMoutinho, @rubendsneves_ and @DiogoJota18 have all been called up by @selecaoportugal for their upcoming fixtures against Ukraine and Serbia.
Congratulations to all and especially to @DiogoJota18 who earns his first senior call-up.

Although he started the season slowly, Jota has been in superb form for his club of late and has become one of the major reasons why Nuno Santo’s men are performing so admirably. He’s become a fan favourite and the impressive reaction to his call up is evidence of that.
Plenty of supporters said how well deserved his inclusion was with one individual keen to voice the increasing threat he’s become to Premier League defences. Another reaction saw the decision to include him in the squad labelled a no-brainer.
At 22, Jota is one of the Premier League’s best upcoming talents and the Molineux faithful will hope he gets the chance to prove himself on the international stage when Portugal take on Ukraine and Serbia.
The former Atletico man has followed up a 17 goal breakthrough season in the Championship by registering six strikes this term as his side sit 7th.
Here’s the reaction to the soon to be Portuguese international getting his call-up.
Very! Fully deserved, his performances, strength and confidence since late November have made him a real danger to any PL defence just as he was last year!
Keen to know what he did or what was done in November to spark the change!
