Manchester United striker Bebe has spoken of his joy at being called up to represent Portugal Under 21s.

The 20-year-old, who signed from Vitoria for the Red Devils this summer, has admitted he has realised a dream by being chosen to represent his nation.

And Bebe is now hopeful of featuring against England Under 21s when the two countries lock horns in the European Championship on Friday night at Barcelos Cidade Stadium.

"I have realised a dream. I am very happy," said the United new boy.

"Playing with the Under 21s will help my development. If I play against England Under 21s it will be incredible."
