Brazil has new faces for matches against Germany and Russian Federation

On Monday Brazil coach Tite named some new faces were included in his Brazil squad that will meet Russian Federation and Germany this month.

Tite has named a couple of new faces in Willian Jose and Anderson Talisca but mentioned that the list does not included several players who might be a part of the final roster for the World Cup.

"I want to give all the athletes opportunities right up until the end", Tite said.

During this winning streak, those numbers are 114 points per game and 47 percent shooting with an offensive rating of 114.5. Paul missed a go-ahead 3 with 14 seconds to play, then fouled Lowry in the scramble for the rebound.

This month's friendlies are to be the last tune-ups before the competition begins in June.

The five-times world champions are without Neymar this month, following the PSG superstar's recent metatarsal injury - so the rest of the squad will be hoping to shine ahead of the World Cup.

Also making his debut for Brazil will be Anderson Talisca, who plays as a professional for Turkish club Besiktas. It's the final set of matches for national teams before this summer's 2018 World Cup.

Defenders: Marcelo, Daniel Alves, Filipe Luis, Fagner, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Pedro Geromel, Rodrigo Caio.

Expectedly, team talisman Neymar is missing as he recovers from a broken foot, but the team still reeks of star quality with Philippe Coutinho, Marcelo, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus, Casemiro, Willian and Ederson set to face Russian Federation in Moscow on March 23 and Germany in Berlin four days later.
