Vinicius Junior called up to Brazil national team for first time

Tite has handed Real Madrid starlet his first taste of the Brazil senior worldwide side by including him in his squad for friendly fixtures against Panama and the Czech Republic.

Vinicius turned in another dazzling display against Barcelona in Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final, although his end product was lacking and the game finished in a 3-0 defeat for Madrid.

The Real Madrid star will be hoping to make his senior global debut following an impressive first season in Spain that has seen him emerge as one of the club's most important players under new coach Santiago Solari.

Tite sent his assistant coach Sylvinho to watch Vinicius and Paqueta in action recently and the duo's trip to Europe nearly yielded an worldwide return for Fernandinho. "I want to give him that growth, affirmation and evolution".

Ilhan Omar has come under fresh criticism for remarks critics call anti-Semitic. AIPAC was not the only one to condemn the Minnesota congresswoman's comment.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho and Real Madrid full-back Marcelo were also left out.

Among players recalled were Porto defender Eder Militao, AC Milan's young attacking midfielder Lucas Paqueta and Daniel Alves of Paris St Germain.

The five-time world champions face Panama at FC Porto's Estadio do Dragao on March 23 before heading to Prague to face Czech Republic three days later.

The five-times world champions have won all six of their games since being knocked out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the quarter-final stage in Russian Federation last July.
