The 23-year-old was selected by Mick McCarthy for the get-together in Portugal on Tuesday, with a squad then finalised for games against Denmark (June 7) and Gibraltar (June 10).

Curtis’ schedule has been relentless since starting the Irish season with Derry City in February last year.

There was a short summer break for him before reporting for pre-season duty with Pompey, after being signed by Kenny Jackett last May.

Some felt that schedule was behind a drop in form at the end of the season, but Curtis still has more football on the horizon.

In a post on Instagram, Curtis said: ‘What a great first season.

‘I can not thank you all (enough) for the unbelievable support throughout the year.

‘It’s a very short break now as I head into the international campaign.

‘Thank you all for the kind messages. PUP.’
