Brazil has new faces for matches against Germany and Russian Federation


Liverpool, Chelsea & Man City stars get Brazil call-ups

Brazil coach Tite has announced his squad for March friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany.

Of the 15 players Tite last month confirmed had already secured their places at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation, only Neymar was absent.

Willian Jose, a 26-year-old striker, was rewarded for his good season at Spanish side Real Sociedad with his first call up to the national side.

It will be the Brazilians' first meeting with Germany since their 7-1 loss in the semi-finals of the World Cup on home soil.

Doctors have yet to set a firm date for Neymar's return.

Talisca, who is shining at Turkey's Besiktas, is recalled, following two friendlies in 2014.

"I want to give all the athletes opportunities right up until the end", coach Tite told a press conference on Monday.
