Tite calls-up his players for the second time for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers
After the two good victories against Ecuador and Colombia, the coach Tite prepares himself and calls-up his players for both next challenges from the2018 World Cup Qualifiers. The call-up took place this Friday (16) afternoon, at CBF’s headquarters.
The coach made few changes in the call-up, but selected players that didn’t wear the Brazilian shirt for a longe time, but they’ll soon be back to play alongside Neymar Jr. The biggest changes were: Thiago Silva, Oscar, Douglas Costa, Fernandinho, Firmino e Alex Muralha.
Instead of 23 players, Tite opted to call 24 athletes and explained that he did that because of Paulinho’s suspension, who will only face Venezuela.
Now the National Brazilian Team, who remains in second place in the qualifiers, will have two big matches that can put them in first place, if they win. Neymar Jr. and his teammates will face Bolivia, on October six, in Natal and against Venezuela, on October 11, in Mérida.
