Sporting Clube de Portugal returned to work this Wednesday to carry out another training session at the Academia Cristiano Ronaldo in Alcochete.
Due to the current series of international commitments for several players, Rúben Amorim was without 12 members of his squad who had been called up for their respective national teams: Franco Israel (Uruguay), Gonçalo Inácio (Portugal), Ousmane Diomande (Ivory Coast), João Muniz, Afonso Moreira and Rodrigo Ribeiro (Portugal under-19), Eduardo Quaresma and Dário Essugo (Portugal Under-21s), Hidemasa Morita (Japan), Morten Hjulmand (Denmark), Geny Catamo (Mozambique) and Viktor Gyökeres (Sweden).
To cover for this the coach called up several young players from the academy to work together with the main team. Among them were Guilherme Pires, João Pereira, Chico Lamba, Pedro Bondo, Diogo Cabral, Diogo Abreu, Rodrigo Marquês, Francisco Canário, Vando Félix and Alexandre Brito.
On Thursday, a training session is scheduled for 10 am behind closed doors in Alcochete.
