Brazil boosted by su­per­star’s re­turn

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Ney­mar will re­join Brazil for 2018 World Cup qual­i­fiers against Ecuador and Colom­bia in his first in­ter­na­tional duty since be­ing trans­ferred in a record-set­ting deal from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Ger­main, na­tional coach Tite said on Thurs­day.

Rested for two friendlies in June — a 1-0 loss to Ar­gentina and a 4-0 de­feat of Aus­tralia — the 25-year-old striker will be along­side three of his new PSG team­mates: Mar­quin­hos, Thi­ago Silva and Daniel Alves.

Tite said the drama over Ney­mar’s trans­fer “changes ab­so­lutely nothing” for the Brazil team.
