Goalkeeper Rui Patricio and midfielders Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota are included in Fernando Santos's squad, with Cristiano Ronaldo also in the team for the first time since the 2018 World Cup.
Jota's inclusion is especially noteworthy because it is his first senior call-up, the 22-year-old having impressed for Wolves this season with six goals and four assists from 25 Premier League games, according to Transfermarkt.
In total, five players who ply their trade in the Premier League have been selected by the reigning European champions, with Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva completing the Selecao quintet travelling from England.
Wolves proudly announced the news on their Twitter account:

Congratulations to all and especially to @DiogoJota18 who earns his first senior call-up.
Some Wanderers faithful reacted on the social media platform with pride in their pack going on to represent the mighty nation:
