The call up means Gabriel could make his debut on the same ground as he plays his club football, with Brazil playing Chile at the Gunner’s Emirates Stadium on Sunday 29th March. They do, however, play France three days earlier in Paris.

Adriano and Gil both have plenty of international experience; Adriano played as the team’s lone striker in the South American’s wins against Turkey and Austria last November, while Gil made his debut 18 months ago.
