Brazil coach Tite has defended his treatment of Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.
The 26-year-old has been a key figure for the Reds this season but has struggled to force his way into Brazil side.
He came off the bench in their 1-0 defeat to Argentina on Friday to make what was only his 11th international appearance.
"Fabinho has built a positive growing. All the times he played, he played very well," said Tite.
"And he brings confidence from his club to the Brazil national squad. In a natural way, and we can feel it. It's not that you can only see it, you can feel it.
"Fabinho is playing his normal football in a role that he also has at Liverpool."
