Andreas Pereira could become the fourth-foreign born player to be called up for the Brazillian national team, and the first in almost a century.
Pereira- who has started both Premier League games this season, was born in Duffel in Belgium.
The Brazilian has been called-up to Tite’s squad along with team-mate Fred as Brazil look to prepare for the Copa America next summer- which will be taking place in Brazil.
the last non-Brazilian to pull on the famous yellow shirt was Francisco Police . The midfielder hailed from Italy and played in a representative game against Uruguayan outfit Dublin on 27 January 1918.
