Brazil left Neymar out of their squad for the November friendlies against Argentina and South Korea on Friday, but coach Tite called up uncapped Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa and Rodrygo of Real Madrid.

Neymar injured a hamstring in Brazil's 1-1 draw with Nigeria on October 13 and is expected to be out for four weeks.

Roma goalkeeper Daniel Fuzato and 20-year old Real Betis defender Emerson were also included in the Brazil squad for the first time.

Tite did not call up any home-based players to avoid conflicts with teams playing the final rounds of the Brazilian league.

Brazil face Argentina in Saudi Arabia on November 15 and then head to Abu Dhabi to play South Korea four days later.
