Former Arsenal star Emmanuel Petit says Gabriel Martinelli shouldn't make the Brazil squad next month for the World Cup.
The 21-year-old has received one call-up for the national side but wasn't part of their latest international break back in September.
Petit told Genting Casino: "Brazil played against Tunisia and Ghana and won both games, and of course, Martinelli wasn't in the squad. I think it's too early for him as there are players with more experience who are more efficient than him.
"We're in the middle of October, and the list will be done in early November. H
"e's having a great season, but is it enough to go to the World Cup? This is Brazil. If he keeps on going in the form he's in, he will be part of it, but I think it's too early."
