Andre Gomes has been given a late call-up to the Portugal squad – and some Everton fans are panicking that he could suffer another injury.

The Toffees have confirmed that the midfielder has linked up with the Portugal squad for European Championship qualifying fixtures against Luxembourg and Ukraine.

He has replaced injured Real Betis enforcer William Carvalho in the squad and is an experienced member on the international stage already with 29 senior caps.

The central midfielder played an important role in Portugal winning the 2016 European Championships, but is now in the squad for the first time during 2019.

A selection of Everton supporters on social media are fearing the worse about the deep-lying playmaker and are predicting a potential injury.

The 26-year-old returned from a rib injury last weekend with a late cameo against Burnley and had previously missed three consecutive league matches.

Marco Silva’s side definitely need him back fit again to help drag the Merseyside club out of the relegation places in the Premier League and his absence of late has been felt.

He has suffered a couple of injuries during just over a year with Everton and supporters certainly don’t want him picking up a fresh problem away on international duty.
