Diogo Dalot was called up to the Portugal squad for Euro 2020 despite never once making a senior appearance for his country. That changed against Germany and he played again tonight versus France.
It has been a great experience for the Manchester United full-back, who spent last season on loan at AC Milan, with plans for him to return to Carrington for pre-season training.
Seeing him represent Portugal at the Euros could give manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer food for thought. It would be great to see a player return from a decent loan spell (AC Milan) as a better player after getting more game time under his belt.
Dalot came off the bench against France and didn’t waste any time after the match in posting a reaction as Portugal reached the knockout stages via Twitter.
O dia de hoje ficará eternizado na minha memória como o dia em que cumpri um sonho 🙌
Que honra representar o meu país, numa fase final de um europeu, e conseguir a passagem aos oitavos 🇵🇹
Obrigado a todos pelo apoio. Dentro de campo sentimos cada um de vocês ❤️ pic.twitter.com/UKrw3YuyXC

He can only learn more from reaching the latter rounds of the Euros.
