Ruben Vinagre has enjoyed a hugely encouraging season with Wolves since they were promoted. Initially signing on loan from Monaco during their Championship winning campaign, he became a permanent part of the furniture last summer.
Playing understudy to Jonny, he’s impressed whenever given a first team opportunity and he’s just received a major piece of news.
Having won the U19 European Championships with Portugal last year, the 20-year-old has now been called up to their U20 side for the World Cup over the summer.

Wolves fans were buzzing with the news as one supporter called him a tremendous player. Another went as far as saying he could become the best left-back in the world.
A further fan suggested that he would be massive next season whilst one individual said he was better than Jonny.
The left-back has started just seven times in the Premier League for Nuno Santo’s side, but starred against Liverpool in the FA Cup back in January.
Vinagre is a typical modern day full-back, boasting phenomenal attacking attributes. It’s arguably no surprise, therefore, that he’s attracted the interest of both Barcelona and Liverpool this year.
If he impresses at the U20 World Cup, Wolves could be left to fend off even more potential suitors.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
What a player Ruben can be! ?????

Vinagre possibly the best LB in the world within 3 years. I’ve never seen a talent like him.

He’ll be massive for us next season. Especially if we make Europe he’ll get so much game time
