Fans are all raving about the same Portugal player after win vs Czechia and think he could be the transfer of the summer

Fans are all raving about the same Portugal player after win vs Czechia and think he could be the transfer of the summer

Portugal edged past Czechia 2-1 in their opening group game - and one player in particular impressed.

Fans are all saying the same thing about one Portugal player after their 2-1 win over Czechia at Euro 2024.

Roberto Martinez's side got their group stage campaign off to the perfect start, although had to come from behind after Lukas Provod's 20-yard strike early in the second half.

Substitute Diogo Jota equalised for Portugal, minutes after the Liverpool star had seen another goal ruled out for offside.

Young Porto winger Francisco Conceicao - the son of former Portugal international Sergio - then scored a dramatic 92nd-minute winner to seal all three points.

It wasn't the smoothest evening that Portugal would have hoped for, but they were the stronger side and had 19 shots on goal over the 90 minutes.

And while there was criticism centred around the performances of several players, including Manchester City's Bernardo Silva, there was one star that everyone got behind on social media.

Wolves star Pedro Neto only made a short cameo as a substitute at the end of the match after being introduced in the 90th minute, but provided a major threat down the wing and set up Conceicao's winner.

The 24-year-old was one of Wolves' top players last season, producing nine assists and scoring two goals, and the club's performances noticeably dipped in an attacking sense while he missed the final month of the campaign through injury.

He has long been linked with a move to Arsenal, and the London Evening Standard claim that Liverpool and Manchester United have joined the race to sign him. It is claimed Neto has a release clause of £102 million in his contract.

One wrote: "Pedro Neto. That is all. Use him earlier, Roberto."

Another said: "Neto is just so good man, exactly the profile of winger we [Arsenal] need. Literally everything we need, it's just injuries that'll likely put us off."

A third stated: "Pedro Neto you are HIM. Should be starting the next game over Leao."

And a fourth added: "Pedro Neto doing what no-one else could do for 89 minutes, in one minute."

Portugal are next in action on June 22 when they take on Turkey at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.
