Fabinho Recalled To Brazil Squad

18/08/2019 8:20 PM

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has been recalled into the Brazil squad after his surprise omission from the Copa América squad this summer.

Brazil play September friendlies against Colombia and Peru in the United States. Fabinho comes in for Fernandinho, who struggled with injury during the Copa América and has yet to appear for Manchester City since the summer.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is injured, so Ederson is likely to start in goal. Roberto Firmino and Richarlison are the other England based players that are called.

Gabriel Jesus is suspended after his red card and subsequent conduct in the Copa América final. Vinicius Junior is recalled in his place.

Tite has called up young goalkeeper Ivan of Ponte Preta, Santos left-back Jorge, Udinese centre-back Samir and Flamengo attacker Bruno Henrique for the first time.
