Brazil strengthens for the classic against Argentina: Gabriel Magalhães was summoned as an emergency

The Brazilian team has had to make some modifications to its squad on the fly, just before the start of the double date of November in the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. The technical command headed by Tite this time called up defender Gabriel Magalhães, player from Arsenal.

Last Sunday, the central defender Lucas Veríssimo became injured after suffering a serious knee injury in the match he played with Benfica in the Primeira Liga de Portugal. The news came just a few hours before he had to join the ‘Canarinha’ concentration, a situation that forced the coach to make a quick decision.

Finally, in the early hours of this Monday, it was known that Gabriel Magalhães will be part of the Brazilian team in the games against Colombia and Argentina. This is the first appointment that the 23-year-old defender has with the senior team, after being part of the U-20.

This year, the Arsenal player could also be part of the Brazilian delegation that competed in the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, but a knee injury left him on the sidelines. Now, with more experience and living one of the best moments of his career, he will seek his revenge.

Although he has been shining in the Premier League under the command of Mikel Arteta, the defender already showed his great footballing qualities when he was at Lille in France (2018-2020). These days he will have Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Éder Militao as teammates in the Brazil team, who will surely help him grow.

Brazil will have two difficult games

The Brazilian team is at the top of the table of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers, but will have to put their unbeaten on the line on the double date of November. First he will receive Colombia (November 11) and then he will visit Argentina (November 16), in a new edition of the South American Classic.
