Brazil's Explains Vinicius' First Brazil Call-Up

Brazil coach Tite has explained why he called up Real Madrid starlet Vinicius Junior for this month's international friendlies.
 
 
The 18-year-old has enjoyed an impressive debut season with the LaLiga giants following his big-money move from Flamengo.
 
Having cemented his starting spot in Santiago Solari's team, the winger has now earned his first call-up to the national side.
 
"I'm open to the emergence of new talent and to encourage them," Tite was quoted as saying by Fox Sports Brasil.
 
"If they are prepared to fight to be in excellent teams, technically and emotionally.
 
"This has led to him [Vinicius] being called up. He's had around 30... 26 matches, and that's remarkable, the performances he's giving.
 
"This analysis is quantitative but also qualitative. But quantity gives us the information. Players who have such potential and who are showing it, are called up.
 
"Even though we'll have little time to train, I want to give him the opportunity of growing and improving. This is confirmation [of his talent] and the evolution of it."
