The Juventus striker is his country's all-time record appearance maker and goalscorer, with 154 caps and 85 goals. 

He scored four goals in the group stage of the World Cup, including a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw with Spain, before Portugal exited against Uruguay in the last-16. 

The squad will begin their campaign at home to Ukraine on March 22 before they host Serbia three days later on March 25.

Wolves forward Diogo Jota may be in line to earn his first Portugal cap in the qualifiers. 

Four of the five England-based players in the squad play for Wolves, with Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, keeper Rui Patricio and attacker Diogo Jota named.

The fifth is Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva, who was also part of the World Cup squad. 

Jota, who has six goals for his club this season, could earn his first cap for his country.
