Liverpool and United new signings set for National team start

Brazil came back to the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday for their final training session in New Jersey before Brazil Global Tour encounter with the United States scheduled for Friday.

And coach Tite, this week has announced his starting eleven, which included Fabinho of Liverpool and Fred of Manchester United.

For first 20 minutes the media were allowed to stay, but were asked not to report what they covered during the rest of the training session.

Tite then distributed the bibs to disclose his first team, confirming that his side will be made up of the majority of the first team that participated in the World Cup.

Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Douglas Costa and Roberto Firmino, all part of the second team in Russia, were also handed a chance by the coach.

Fabinho is the only member of the first team who was not part of the Brazilian World Cup team and will replace the injured Fagner at the right back position.

Marquinhos will join Thiago Silva in the heart of the defense, replacing Inter defender, Miranda, who was not called to the team this month.
