Liverpool midfielder Roberto Firmino rewarded with Brazil recall

Liverpool midfielder Roberto Firmino has earned a Brazil recall.

He has been added to the Brazil squad for World Cup qualifying matches against Uruguay and Paraguay.

Firmino was initially left out in favour of veteran midfielder Kaka.

However, a thigh injury to the Orlando City star sustained during a training session has seen Firmino drafted in by coach Dunga.

The 24-year-old could now feature against Uruguay on March 26 and then Paraguay three days later.
