Tite selects his players for the National Brazilian Team games against Argentina and Peru

This Friday (21), at CBF’s headquarters, the coach Tite made his new call-up for the next two challenges that the National Brazilian Team will have to face in the Russia 2018’s World Cup Qualifiers. Brazil will soon face Argentina and Peru.

Trying to maintain the lead of the competition and the conquered Undefeated status, Tite opted to make a team without many changes from the one that defeated Bolivia and Venezuela. Between the team’s novelties, Douglas Costa, Marcelo and Casemiro are back, while Rodrigo Caio is the newcomer in Oscar’s place. Neymar Jr., who was suspended from the last match, will also return to the group.

The National Brazilian Team’s next challenges will be tough ones. The team will face Argentina, in November 10th, at the Mineirão and later, they’ll face Peru, on November 16th, in Lima. NJr and his teammates conquered the Qualifier’s lead after the 2-0 victory against Venezuela and, with 21 points, they’re ahead of Uruguay (20 pts), who lead before.
