Tite has revealed the list of players called up to the Brazil squad for the friendlies which Brazil will play at the beginning of September. The return of Neymar and Vinicius' first call-up for the senior side are the key things to note.

Brazil will face Colombia and Peru at the beginning of September. Tite has made a 23 man list for the two friendlies with some players, some new faces and the expected return of Neymar

Tite has selected three goalkeepers. As Alisson is out injured, Ederson (Manchester City), Weverton (Palmeiras) and Ivan (Ponte Preta). 

Tite has called a total of eight defenders, four central defenders and four full-backs. The wings will be for Dani Alves (Sao Paulo), Fagner (Corinthians), Alex Sandro (Juventus) and Jorge (Santos)

Marquinhos, Thiago Silva (both PSG), Militao (Real Madrid) and Samir (Udinese) are in central defence. 

Casemiro (Real Madrid), Arthur, Coutinho (both Barca), Allan (Napoli), Fabinho (Liverpool) and Paqueta (Milan) are the midfielders. 

And lastly, six strikers have been called up by Tite. Bruno Henrique (Flamengo), David Neres (Ajax), Firmino (Liverpool), Neymar (PSG), Richarlison (Everton) and Vinicius (Real Madrid).

Real Madrid and Barca are the only La Liga sides to have players in the squad. Vinicius, Militao and Casemiro for Real, Arthur and Coutinho for Barca. The return of Neymar is notable considering the fact he has not played a single minute of pre-season. 

Gabriel Jesus is out suspended after being banned by CONMEBOL for two months after the Copa America final.
