Pereira to represent Portugal Under-21s

Pedro Pereira has been called up to Rui Jorge's side ahead of next month's international fixtures.

Right-back Pereria, on a season-long loan at City from Benfica, is now in line for the two Euro 2020 U21 qualifiers against Gibraltar U21s and Belarus U21s, respectively.

The Esperanças host Gibraltar at the Complexo Desportivo FC Alverca on Thursday, September 5th (8.45pm KO), followed by Belarus away at the Torpedo Stadium (September 10th, 8pm KO).

This follows news of Callum O'Dowda's call-up for the Republic of Ireland's games next month.
