Three of Manchester City’s Brazilians have been called up by Tite for their games against Colombia and Ecuador.
Ederson Moraes, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus have all been selected to feature for Brazil but Danilo will be left in Manchester, as he was omitted from the squad despite picking up 15 senior international caps.
Brazil’s national team face Colombia on the 30th August before lining up against Ecuador, both of which will be part of the World Cup qualifiers. It could be an international debut for new recruit Ederson Moraes who has only previously featured for the under-23 side and his move to Manchester City could help him to push out AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson from between the sticks.
Fernandinho is of course no stranger to the setup with a number of caps to his name and Gabriel Jesus will be looking to continue his fine international form.
