SAO PAULO: Brazil have called up Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura for friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Argentina, national team coordinator Edu Gaspar said on Monday.

Moura, 26, last played for Brazil two years ago and has made only three substitute appearances in five years for the five-times world champions.

Brazil play Saudi Arabia in Riyadh on Friday and then travel to Jeddah to face rivals Argentina four days later.
