Ricardo Pereira has been in fine form this season and if he continues to play as he did against Luxembourg then he could cement his place in the Portugal squad for Euro 2020.
He has fierce competition for a place from Joao Cancelo and Nelson Semedo, but he has won his place on merit and many supporters were left impressed by his display on Sunday.
Only two Premier League players have averaged more tackles per game this season than the right-back, but Pereira has also made two successful dribbles per game and has two goals overall.

That shows how adept he is in both attack and defence, and is worthy of the praise that has been lavished upon him.
Some supporters thought he was the best player on the pitch against Luxembourg, and has therefore justified his selection choice after biding his time for regular involvement in the national team, having first played for Portugal 2015.
Here is how some fans have been responding to his impressive display.
Ricardo Pereira is the real deal

Ricardo pereira qualified for the euros all by himself today, I don’t think your RB will ever reach the same feat

Ricardo Pereira is the only player who can hold his head high in this performance. Driving force and defended well. Everyone else has been either poor, or worse than that.
