Neymar Jr and Dani Alves have been named in the 23-man squad by Brazil manager Dunga for the next two qualifying matches for the 2018 World Cup. The ‘canarinha’ will be action against Argentina in Buenos Aires on November 12 and are then at home at the Arena Fonte Nova in Alves’ home city of Salvador de Bahía, this time against Peru on November 17.
This will be Neymar Jr’s first taste of international football since his suspension at the last Copa America. Brazil lost their opening game in the mammoth CONMEBOL qualifying group, 2-0 away to Claudio Bravo’s Chile. They then won 3-1 at home to Venezuela.
