Lucas Veríssimo and Everton. These are the two SL Benfica players in Tite's squad list for Brazil's matches against Ecuador and Paraguay, for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers.

Tite has called up 24 players for the two matches and the highlight goes to the debut of Lucas Veríssimo, who will be joined by Everton. The eagles' 25-year-old central defender has earned the confidence of the Brazilian national coach and will have his opportunity to wear the yellow jersey.  

Brazil faces Ecuador at the Estádio Beira-Rio, on June 4 and four days later (June 8), it will be time to face Paraguay, in Asunción.

Brazil has 12 points in four matches played in the competition so far and is the leader of the South American qualifiers.
