BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 751

Tottenham attacker Lucas Moura has been called up to the Brazil sqaud for the first time in two years.

The former PSG star has not played for his country since the 2016 edition of the Copa America and will now look to add to his 34 international caps in their upcoming games against Saudi Arabia and Argentina.

The Brazilian football confederation confirmed the news on Monday, the Spurs man will replace Geremio's Everton in the squad, after he withdrew due to injury.

Technical coordinator Edu Gaspar said: “He is a player we have monitored since his time with PSG,” 

“We want to take advantage of this cycle by observing [new players]. We spoke to Tottenham this morning and they understood the importance of this call-up for both the player and the Brazilian national team.”

He will not have far to travel as the team is currently based at Tottenham Hotspur's tarining facility in Enfield, London, where the squad will remain until Wednesday when they fly to Saudi Arabia.
