Lucas Moura and Luis Fabiano looking forward to Seleção partnership
São Paulo players Lucas Moura and Luis Fabiano are looking forward to playing together for the Seleção, when they take on Argentina next week.
The duo has been selected in Mano Menezes’ domestic based squad for the upcoming Superclassico double-header.
Luis Fabiano has received his first call-up since the 2010 World Cup due to his free-scoring form of late.
The striker has topped the Brasileirão goalscoring charts following a goal against Portuguesa on Saturday, making it 11 in 13 league matches.
Luis Fabiano said: "Me and Lucas get along well. I love playing with him because he's smart and I hope we will be together for the Seleção."
Lucas has recently been enjoying a lengthy run in the national side, including during the London Olympics where he won a silver medal.
Following his side’s 3 - 1 win over Portuguesa, Lucas said he thinks his effective partnership with Luis Fabiano was "once again proven."
Brazil will face Argentina in Goiania on September 19 with the return leg being played in Resistencia on October 10.
