LISBON, Portugal — Portugal coach Fernando Santos keeps making over his squad, handing two players their first call-ups and bringing back two veterans for the European Championship qualifier against Armenia next week and a friendly against Argentina.
Santos took charge six weeks ago, when Paulo Bento departed after a home defeat against Albania in the opening Euro 2016 qualifier.
Santos called up five new players and several overlooked veterans, and got the qualifying campaign back on track last month with a 1-0 win in Denmark.
Portugal plays Armenia on Nov. 14 and meets Argentina in Manchester, England four days later.
Defenders: Jose Bosingwa (Trabzonspor), Bruno Alves (Fenerbahce), Cedric (Sporting Lisbon), Pepe (Real Madrid), Antunes (Malaga), Jose Fonte (Southampton), Ricardo Carvalho (Monaco), Raphael Guerreiro (Lorient), Tiago Gomes (Braga).
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Nani (Sporting Lisbon), Vieirinha (Wolfsburg), Ricardo Quaresma (Porto), Eder (Braga), Danny (Zenit St. Petersburg).
