Arsenal defender Gabriel gets Brazil call-up
Rio de Janeiro, March 21 : Brazil coach Dunga has called up uncapped Arsenal central defender Gabriel Paulista for friendlies against France and Chile.
Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano and Corinthians centre-back Gil were also drafted into Brazil's 23-member squad on Friday, reports Xinhua.
The trio's inclusion comes after the injury-enforced omissions of Paris Saint-Germain defenders David Luiz and Marquinhos and Shandong Luneng striker Diego Tardelli.
Gabriel joined Arsenal in January for 11 million pounds after an impressive 18-month spell with Spain's Villarreal.
Brazil will meet France in Paris on March 26 before taking on Chile in London three days later.
