Tottenham Hotspur loanee Gedson Fernandes returned to action for Portugal Under-21’s on international duty in the wake of his Europa League snub.
The 21-year-old was left out of Tottenham’s 25-man squad for the upcoming group stage campaign along with Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga (Sky Sports).
The midfielder has been limited to just 63 minutes of football in North London this season after starting the Carabao Cup victory against rivals Chelsea (transfermarkt).
Gedson proved to be the provider for his side’s opening goal when he played Pedro Neto through on goal in the 4-1 victory against their Norwegian counterparts.

It appears difficult for Gedson to make his mark on the Tottenham first team this season when there are a number of players ahead of him in the pecking order.
The loan agreement which we have with Benfica, which is reported to have the option to become permanent for a reported £56million; an astronomical fee for a relatively unproven 21-year-old in today’s market and seems unlikely that Spurs would spent such amounts on a player who has had little impact since his move.
