Neymar who has been injured for two months and hasn’t played a game since he had a surgery on his broken foot, will likely be relieved with this news as his fitness was in question.
The former Barcelona winger is probably the most important player for Brazil as he has the ability to win any game on his own.
Along with the announcement of Neymar, Tite also named four Manchester City players in Gabriel Jesus, Danilo, Fernandinho and Ederson.
Veteran full-back Dani Alves who is on the sidelines due to an ankle injury has been replaced by Fagner who plays in the Russian League.
