Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has been called up to the Brazil national team for the first time in two years, replacing the injured Everton who pulled out of the squad.
Moura has been immensely impressive for Spurs so far this season, as he scored three goals in August, claiming the first player of the month of the season.
Since then Moura has been a permanent fixture in the Tottenham front line, playing both up front next to Kane and on either wing.
The 26-year-old was last called up to the Brazil side over two years ago, and has only made three substitute appearances in the past five years.
Reports by SkySports suggest Brazil spoke to Tottenham before calling the player up, but both sides realised how important this was for Moura.
Luckily the winger won’t have far to travel as Brazil checked into Hotspur Way on Sunday evening where they will train until their flight on Wednesday.
Brazil play Saudi Arabia and Argentina in the next week.
