Tite Announces Squad for Russian Federation and Germany Friendlies

Tite Announces Squad for Russian Federation and Germany Friendlies

With Neymar out injured, Brazil coach Tite has brought in Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose for upcoming friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany.

Tite acknowledged that the 25-man list does not include several players who are likely to be part of the final squad for this year's FIFA World Cup.

However, uncapped trio Valencia goalkeeper Neto, Besiktas midfielder Anderson Talisca and Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose will all get a chance to make their debut in the upcoming global friendlies.

Doctors have yet to set a firm date for Neymar's return.

The five-times world champions kick off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17 before facing Costa Rica and Serbia.


Also selected for a possible debut is Anderson Talisca, who plays for Turkish club Besiktas.

A posse of English Premier League players led by Chelsea's Willian, Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool's Roberto Firmino will lead Brazil's quest in upcoming friendlies against World Cup hosts Russian Federation and reigning champions Germany later in the month.

The Russia game will take place in Moscow before Brazil fly to Berlin to face Germany.

It will be the Brazilians' first meeting with Germany since their 1-7 loss to the European side in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
