Jesus, Martinelli Out Of Brazil Squad For World Cup Warm-Up Matches

Arsenal duo Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli were both left out of Brazil's squad for upcoming friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia on Friday as Tite's side warm-up for the World Cup.

Also missing in the midfield position is Phillipe Coutinho despite the former Barca man making a career rejuvenation at Aston Villa.

The five-time world champions face Ghana in the French city Le Havre on September 23 before taking on Tunisia four days later at the Parc des Princes.

Jesus, who has impressed this season since joining Premier League leaders Arsenal from Manchester City, featured 11 times for Brazil in World Cup qualifying without scoring.

The tournament gets underway in Qatar on November 20.

Coutinho, who has scored 21 goals in 68 international appearances, has made a slow start to the campaign with Steven Gerrard's struggling Aston Villa.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is unsurprisingly in the squad and could play at his home club ground in the Tunisia game, alongside PSG teammate Marquinhos.

Brazil will start their bid for a sixth World Cup against Serbia on November 24 in Lusail, with further Group G games against Switzerland and Cameroon.
