Vinicius returns to Brazil's squad list for World Cup qualifiers
Brazil have now announced their squad for the next two 2022 World Cup qualifiers. This Friday, Tite announced in a press conference the 23 man list and Vinicius is the new player to be included.
The Real Madrid winger had not been called up for the senior team for a year. Firstly because of the coronavirus and then because he was not included in the two games in the October international window.
His first and only appearance for the Brazil senior team was on 11th September 2019 when he played a few minutes in Brazil's 0-1 loss to Peru. Now, Vinicius returns ahead of the games against Venezuela and Uruguay on 14th and 17th November.
Casemiro and Eder Militao are also in the team. Rodrygo Goes misses out after being in the previous squad.
The full Brazil squad is the following:
Alisson, Ederson, Weverton; Danilo, Gabriel Menino, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Militao, Rodrigo Caio, Renan Lodi, Alex Telles; Casemiro, Fabinho, Arthur, Douglas Luiz, Everton Ribeiro, Coutinho, Neymar, Everton; Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius, Roberto Firmino and Richarlison.
