Tite calls up Eder Militao and Casemiro for Brazil games in September

Brazil national team head coach Tite has called up Real Madrid duo Eder Militao and Casemiro to his squad for the World Cup qualifiers in September.

The Canarinhos will play Chile, Argentina and Peru - in that order - as they continue their quest to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Brazil currently lead the South American qualifying section and sit six points ahead of Argentina with six games played.

It also means it will be a busy start to the season for some of Real Madrid's players, with the pair in question already making long-distance travel plans before a ball has been kicked in LaLiga Santander.

Fellow Brazilians in Los Blancos' squad Marcelo, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior, however, have not been called up, which in the case of the latter two is something of a surprise.

The games in question are slated for September 2, 5 and 9, and being still three weeks away, it is also noteworthy that the Brazilian federation has announced the squad so early.

For the two Real Madrid players who will be part of that squad, there is no question that they deserve their place. Eder Militao was one of the most improved players over the course of last season and ended the campaign as an undisputed starter for Los Blancos.

Casemiro, meanwhile, has been a stalwart for club and country for years now, but precisely because of that Carlo Ancelotti may be wary of him playing so many games so early in this new season.

It is at that time when injuries can begin to appear, so, while wishing the players well, Madridistas will hope most of all that their Brazilians return healthy from their international exploits.
