Ahead of the World Cup, Asensio will be preparing to come up against his Madrid teammate and Portugal captain, Ronaldo, with Spain's first Group B game coming against Fernando Santos' Seleccao das Quinas.
Ronaldo posted a photograph on his twitter account wearing the No. 7 jersey with the message: "The world is watching".
"He is very strong mentally", Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho said. He is an added value.
Playing without their leader, Portugal drew 2-2 with Tunisia and 0-0 against Belgium in their last two friendlies.
It has been suggested that Asensio could be the man to fill the void for Madrid once Ronaldo leaves, but the Spaniard is not willing to be drawn on whether he could replace the 33-year-old.
Per Jose Felix Diaz of Marca, Neymar still believes he can secure a "miracle move" to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, and Real continue to view signing him as their No. 1 priority.
So far without him, Portugal have failed to secure a win in either of their warm-up matches, drawing with Tunisia (2-2) and Belgium (0-0) but will look to make amends when they face Algeria on June 7. Reports on Friday claimed Ronaldo learned of Zidane's decision while on holiday in Marbella and the France legend is set to call his former player and advise him to remain in the Spanish capital.
