Brazil face Morocco in a friendly on Saturday but Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson was surprisingly overlooked in the game despite being the nation's first choice goalkeeper for the World Cup in Qatar.

In Seleção's interim manager Ramon Menezes's 23-man squad for this weekend team, while the search for Tite's permanent successor continues, Ederson was included along with two goalkeepers currently in Brazil's top flight: Mycael (Athletico Paranaense) and Weverton (Palmeiras).

Ederson to reporters: "The first moment I saw the list I was surprised, but it’s the coach’s decision. They are choices, I thought he would be on the list, but he was not.

"I do not know why, if it is a matter of opportunities for younger players. But we have to work, give our best, every day there is a good new player who can take that responsibility too.

“I think it’s too early for that (talk of him being number one). Of course it is always important to start a cycle, for me it is no different and I hope to start in the best way possible. But we know it is a long cycle, many things can happen, you can live many phases during this period. You have to work as hard as possible, maintain consistency so you can be here as many times as possible.”
