Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Magalhaes are left out of the Brazil squad as brazil takes on Ghana and Tunisia in September ahead of the Qatar world cup; Tottenham’s Richarlison, Manchester United’s Anthony, and Liverpool’s Alisson, Fabninho, and Roberto Firmino inclusive.

These three players have been a crucial part of Arsenal’s great start to the season which has powered them to the top of the Premier League after six matches.

It is rather unfortunate that they will not play any role in the Brazil warm-up/pre-world cup matches against Tunisia and Ghana in September.

Tite included Flamengo striker Pedro, who is the top scorer in this season’s Copa Libertadores with 12 goals, as a new attacking option instead of Gabriel Jesus with three goals.

Brazil is set to experiment with two defenders called up for their first time, Roma’s Roger Ibanez and Juventus’ Gleison Bremer which leaves no space for Gabriel Jesus.
