Alex Sandro in Brazil squad

Juventus left-back Alex Sandro has been included in the Brazil squad to face Argentina and Australia.

The defender has come to be regarded as one of the best in the world in his position, but so far he has only been given six caps for the Selecao.

However, after two goals and five assists this season, he has earned a recall to the squad for the upcoming friendlies.
