Liverpool & Man United stars are in
On Thursday, leading Brazilian news outlet Globo Esporte believe they know how the national team will line up against the Americans.
From a Premier League point of view, players from Liverpool and Man United are set to start the match.
Starting with Man United’s representative, Fred is set to receive a midfield berth. Fred is set to operate alongside Real Madrid’s Casemiro and Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho.
Liverpool are set to have three players in the XI.
At the back, Alisson will start in goal for the Selecao. Fabinho, who has yet to feature for Liverpool since his summer move from Monaco, will play his first game of the year at right-back for Brazil.
Finally, Roberto Firmino will be Brazil’s central striker. He’ll be flanked by PSG’s Neymar and Juventus winger Douglas Costa.
No room for Everton’s Richarlison
As for Everton forward Richarlison, he’ll begin the USA match on the bench.
Richarlison will be hoping for some minutes against the Americans, which would be the first time the Everton star represented his team at senior international level.
This will be Brazil’s first post-World Cup starting lineup, vs USA on Friday.
The bench will be quite interesting with the likes of Alex Sandro, Arthur, Andreas Pereira and Richarlison waiting to grab their chances.
