Wolverhampton Wanderers star Ruben Neves is happy for the performances he’s had during the international break.

The Portuguese international was a starter in both games his national team played. He first featured in the 1-1 draw against Croatia, and last night, for the Nations League, he played the 90 minutes in the 1-0 win over Italy.

Neves spoke to the local press after the victory, and said he was satisfied with his latest appearances for Portugal:

“All players are prepared to play. I was the choice in these two games and it is up to Mr. Fernando Santos to make the decision. I’m one more to help and when I’m called I’ll do my best, as I’ve done. I liked the games I played and now it’s up to me to improve,” said Neves.

The player was much praised by local newspapers for the performance against Italy. Newspaper O Jogo says he has an ‘excellent positional sense’ and that’s why he’s the ‘team’s pendulum’. Outlet Record says he ‘fulfilled his mission’ and ‘it’s not hard to understand that he’s in good form’.

Neves now returns to Wolves as the club prepare to face Burnley in the Premier League at Molineux on Sunday.
