On Friday, Brazil coach Tite will name his squad for November's Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour double-header against Uruguay and Cameroon.
The Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour will end 2018 with matches against Uruguay at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on November 16 and Cameroon at Stadium MK on November 20.
It will also be the final contest of what Tite has labelled the ‘first phase’ of a new cycle ahead of Qatar 2022, as the five-time world champions build a team ready to claim Copa America 2019 on home soil.
Tite has handed out nine debuts since the World Cup (Neto, Felipe, Eder Militao, Andreas Pereira, Arthur, Lucas Paqueta, Richarlison, Everton and Pablo) and intends for November’s matches to finalise his Copa America team ahead of March’s Brasil Global Tour return.
Brazil have won all four of their friendly matches since World Cup 2018, securing Brasil Global Tour victories over USA, El Salvador, Saudi Arabia and Argentina, but still have a number of positions in the starting line-up yet to be defined.
Brasil Global Tour reporter Raisa Simplicio will be in Rio on Friday to capture the news and reaction to Friday’s squad.
