Allan: ‘Thank you Napoli’

Allan thanks Napoli after the “immense joy” of receiving his first call-up to the Brazil squad.

The midfielder has been included in Tite’s squad for friendlies against Uruguay and Cameroon, perhaps not coincidentally after he was linked with an Italy call.

“It’s an immense source of joy, I’m so emotional about this call-up,” Allan said on the Partenopei’s official website.

“I thank everyone at Napoli: the club, the Coach, and the group with whom I share my happiness.”

Brazil call up Napoli's Allan

Napoli midfielder Allan has received his first-ever call-up to the Brazil squad for their upcoming matches against Uruguay and Cameroon.

Allan had been linked with the Azzurri, given he has been playing his trade in Serie A for the past six years and reportedly has a distant Italian relative.

However, Brazil have opted to select him before a Jorginho situation possibly reoccurs, the 27-year-old joined by Inter defendr Miranda and Juventus winger Douglas Costa.

Brazil to call Italy target Allan?

Italy’s plans to call Napoli midfielder Allan could be ruined, as it’s reported Brazil Coach Tite will give him his first cap.

The 27-year-old has a dual passport and spent much of his career in Italy at Udinese and then Napoli.

There were reports that Italy boss Roberto Mancini was considering a call-up for Allan and the player was giving it serious thought.

With time running out, it’s now rumoured that Tite is going to include Allan in his next Brazil squad to ensure he doesn’t feel tempted to represent the Azzurri instead.

Dybala injured for Argentina

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala will be evaluated, after picking up a knee injury while on international duty with Argentina.

La Joya played for his country against Brazil last night, with Inter’s Joao Miranda scoring the only goal of the game for the Selecao.

Dybala had to be taken off after 57 minutes, and was seen applying an ice pack to his knee on the bench.

According to Fox Sports, the initial impression is that the injury is nothing serious, but the forward will still have to be evaluated when he returns to Turin.

La Joya was in the starting XI with Inter striker Mauro Icardi and Fiorentina defender German Pezzella in Jedda.

The showpiece friendly was decided by Inter defender Miranda’s header on a Neymar corner deep into stoppages, with Giovanni Simeone of Fiorentina failing to jump and cut it out at the near post.

It was the Juve man’s first goal at his 10th appearance for the Selecao.

Saudi Arabia went down to 10 men at the 85th minute, as goalkeeper Mohamed Al-Owais handled the ball outside the penalty area.

Italy to call on Napoli's Allan?

Italy Coach Roberto Mancini has reportedly asked Napoli’s Brazilian midfielder Allan to switch allegiances to the Azzurri.

According to Sky Sport Italia and TV Luna commentator Carlo Alvino, the Nazionale are eager to snap up the 27-year-old.

It seems he has a distant Italian relative that would make him eligible for a passport.

Allan has been in Italy since 2012 for Udinese, then joined Napoli for €11.5m in the summer of 2015.

Although the midfielder was given five caps for Brazil at Under-20 level, he was otherwise ignored.

Douglas Costa left out by Brazil

Juventus winger Douglas Costa has been left out of the Brazil squad, partly due to spitting at Federico Di Francesco of Sassuolo.

The 28-year-old has been given a four game Serie A ban for his actions last weekend, and may be out anyway after being injured in the win over Valencia.

“As I’ve said on other occasions, there will be a chance for those who were out,” Tite said at the Press conference to announce his squad.
