A youth team regular for Portugal, Ruben Dias got his first senior call-up from coach Fernando Santos in March 2018, only for an untimely injury to prevent him from taking his place in the squad.

The young Benfica defender has nevertheless proven to be one of the breakout stars of the season, a talented centre-back that possesses leadership skills that belie his age and relative lack of experience in the elite. An imposing presence on the pitch and quick to anticipate the intentions of opposing strikers, the pacy Dias is a rising star in Portuguese football.
