Fred Firmino Neymar USA Brazil Friendly 07092018

Brazil will be looking to round off the international break on a high after defeating the USMNT 2-0 at the MetLife Stadium in what was their first outing since their World Cup exit to Belgium.

A win against El Salvador will further encourage them ahead of plans to prepare for the Copa America, though Tite will give opportunity for new talent, resting a number of their big names.

There is good news for Liverpool fans as the Merseyside-residing trio of Alisson, Firmino and Fabinho will all be left out of the XI, allowing the internationals to be given a rest ahead of a crucial Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

Firmino's absence in the starting lineup will give Richarlison to make a mark up front, earning a call up to the national team after impressing for Everton, scoring three goals in his opening three fixtures, and is set to be handed his full debut by Tite.

El Salvador also look to be a confident side going into the clash despite being heavy underdogs against Brazil, having beaten Montserrat 1-2 in their CONCACAF Nationals League Qualifier over the weekend.
