Neymar and Philippe Coutinho are included in a strong Brazil squad that will face the United States and El Salvador next month, with Manchester United's Andreas Pereira among the new names announced on Friday.

The matches will be the team's first since their 2-1 World Cup quarterfinal defeat to Belgium in Russian Federation last month.

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira says he is a different player and person after spending two years on loan away from Old Trafford.

Cruzeiro defender Dede defender, Porto stopper Felipe, Gremio forward Everton and Fluminense striker Pedro all received their first call-ups under Tite.

Brazil face the U.S. in New Jersey on September 7 and then play El Salvador in Washington four days later.

Danilo is injured but Fernandinho and Ederson are surprise omissions, while Gabriel Jesus drops out after failing to score at Russian Federation 2018.

ESPN won't air national anthem in Monday Night Football
The first ESPN Monday Night Football broadcast of the 2018-19 NFL season will be a double-header on September 10. ESPN, however, did make exceptions during last season.

Pereira, 22, was born in Belgium but has a Brazilian father and had represented Belgium 27 times up to U17 level before switching his allegiance to Brazil in 2014.

Ederson won his first senior cap for Brazil earlier this year but has been left out of the squad for personal reasons.

According to Manchester Evening News, Andreas said: "It was very hard for me to take that decision".

Brazil meet US at MetLife Stadium on September 7 before hosting El Salvador at FedExField on September 11. "They've been really good for me, I think I've totally changed as a player and a human being after these two years", he added.

Tite said he plans to test as many young players as possible ahead of next year's Copa America in Brazil and the start of the 2022 World Cup qualifying tournament later in 2019.
