Serie A quartet in Brazil squad

Alex Sandro, Lucas Paqueta and Allan, as well as Udinese’s Samir, are in the Brazil squad for upcoming friendlies with Colombia and Peru.

Sandro, Paqueta and Allan all keep their places from Brazil’s Copa America conquest earlier in the summer.

There is also a first-ever call-up for Samir [pictured], who takes advantage of an injury to Flamengo defender Rodrigo Caio.

The Selecao host Colombia on September 7 before taking on Copa America runners-up Peru four days later.
