United duo named in Brazil squad
Manchester United duo Alex Telles and Fred have been named in the Brazil squad for their clashes with South Korea, Japan and Argentina next month.
The five-time World Cup winners, who will be hoping to win their first World Cup crown since 2002 when they arrive in Qatar later this year, will fulfill three fixtures next month ahead of the tournament getting started in November. They will lock horns with South Korea on Thursday, June 2 before facing Japan a few days later on Monday, June 6. They will then face Argentina on Saturday, June 11.
Both Brazil and Argentina went toe to toe in a 2022 World Cup qualifier back in September last year but it was abandoned just minutes after kick-off, when Brazilian health officials entered the pitch to stop Argentina’s players who play in England from playing. It sparked bizarre and memorable scenes, unlike anything that has ever been witnessed before.
