Tite to Name Brazil Squad on Friday
Brazil boss Tite will name his squad for October qualifiers against Bolivia and Chile this Friday. The Seleção are already guaranteed top spot in the CONMEBOL qualifiers.
It could be that Tite leaves some of his big names out with a draining journey to La Paz to play Bolivia on Thursday, 5th October. Bolivia’s La Paz stadium is at high altitude and notoriously difficult to play in.
Brazil will finish their successful qualifying campaign with a game against Chile in São Paulo on 10th October. Tite is likely to use the games to test fringe players as he begins preparations for the World Cup in Russia next summer.
Premier League players such as Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus, Ederson, Fernandinho, Willian and Philippe Coutinho are all in contention to be selected. The squad will be named at 11am Brasilia (3pm UK time).
