Brazil recall Becker, Jesus

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker and Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus were recalled by Brazil coach Tite on Friday as he named his squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Uruguay.

Real Madrid pair Vinicius Junior and Eder Militao, and Juventus midfielder Arthur have also been brought back into the squad alongside stars Neymar, Coutinho, Casemiro and Thiago Silva.

Alisson and Jesus were both called up for the victories over Bolivia (5-0) and Peru (4-2) earlier this month but had to pull out after picking up injuries with their clubs.

Vinicius, 20, was last selected in September 2019 while Militao, 22, had not been part of a squad since last November.

"If a normal car has five gears, he has six or seven," Tite said of Vinicius, who scored seconds after coming on as a substitute for Real in their shock 3-2 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday.
