Portugal face Switzerland tonight in the Nations League semi-finals, and Wolves fans will want to tune in to see Diogo Jota and the pack’s other star players.
The Portugal Vs. Switzerland match kicks off tonight at 19:45, and it can be watched on Sky Sports.
Thanks to the alliance with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, there’s a lot of Wolves in the Portugal team.

How many Wolves players are in the Portugal squad against Switzerland?
Portugal announced their Nations League squad on May 23 (BBC), and there’s four Wolves players in the 23-man unit.
Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho have been Portuguese regulars for a while, but Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota are now a part of their national team’s set-up.
Although it’s likely Patricio, Moutinho, and Neves will all start, Jota will probably be confined to the bench.
Despite having a fantastic season with Wolves, Jota will no doubt be second fiddle to the superhuman specimen, Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, despite Ronaldo likely being the first name on the team sheet to soothe his ego, there’s still a chance Jota will make a cameo.
While Jota could come off from the bench, Wolves fans won’t get to see the striker linked to Molineux the most, Andre Silva.
Wolves are said to be “in pole position” to sign the AC Milan Striker (SPORTbible), but the once Portuguese regular is no longer a part of his nation’s line-up.
Helder Costa hasn’t made the Portuguese squad either, but that isn’t surprising considering he’s been abysmal and needs to be sold.
