Paqueta in Brazil squad

Lucas Paqueta, Miranda, Alex Sandro and Allan are all in Brazil’s squad to face Panama and Czech Republic next month.

Paqueta is rewarded for his bright start at Milan and Alex Sandro replaces Juventus target Marcelo at left-back, while Miranda and Allan both keep their places.

However there are no spots for Parma new boy Gabriel Brazao and the injured Douglas Costa, although former Lazio winger Felipe Anderson is a new addition.

Brazil host Panama on March 23 before taking on Czech Republic three days later as preparations for Copa America, which starts in June.

Brazil squad in full:

Alisson, Ederson, Weverton; Dani Alves, Danilo, Filipe Luis, Alex SandroMiranda, Thiago Silva, Eder Militao; Casemiro, Arthur, Fabinho, Allan, Coutinho, Felipe Anderson, Paqueta, Everton; Firmino, Vinicius Jr, Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison
