Striker Pedro and midfielder Everton Ribeiro, both from Flamengo, were the big news on DT Tite’s squad for the Brazil team’s friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia, the last before giving the final list for the World Cup.
Gabriel Jesús, Philippe Coutinho and Dani Alves, who had been frequenting the coach’s list, were left out this time.
The team will face Ghana on September 23, in Le Havre (France) and four days later it will face Tunisia in Paris.
The two African teams will also be at the World Cup in Qatar in November, and the duels should mainly serve as preparation for the clash that Brazil will have in the first round against Cameroon. Serbia and Switzerland complete the group.
