The Napoli midfielder will be hoping to make his Selecao debut as the Brasil Global Tour returns with tests against Uruguay and Cameroon

Paulinho and Douglas Costa will return to a strong Brazil squad in November as the Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour resumes with matches against Uruguay and Cameroon.

Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho was a key member of Tite’s first-team going into World Cup but had missed out on both Brazil squads since Russia.

Juventus forward Douglas Costa is back after being left out last month after picking up a red card and lengthy ban for his club.

Napoli midfielder Allan was called up for the first time and hopes to make his international debut in the United Kingdom next month.

Cruzeiro defender Dede, omitted in October due to his club commitments, has returned and so too has Chelsea’s Willian, who was dropped last month.

Alex Sandro missed out this time, as did Porto defender Eder Militao, Manchester United midfielder Fred, Beijing Guoan's Renato Augusto and Malcom of Barcelona, all of whom were present for October victories over Saudi Arabia and Argentina.

Tite continued his policy of including a youngster as his first-choice goalkeeper with Cruzeiro’s Gabriel Brazao set to join the squad.

Brazil are coming to the end of the “first phase” of a three-stage cycle ahead of Qatar 2022, trying a number of new faces as they build a team for Copa America 2019, which they will host.

The five-time world champions face Uruguay at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on November 16 before heading north to Milton Keynes where they will meet Cameroon at Stadium MK.
