Whites winger Raphinha dazzled in his first three games for Brazil during the October international break against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay.

Brazil now face another two World Cup qualifiers in November and Raphinha has once again been included in Tite's squad, despite the return of Liverpool star Bobby Firmino who is also included after recovering from injury.

From a UK time perspective, Brazil face a home clash against Colombia in the early hours of Friday, November 12 (kick-off 12.30am), staged in Sao Paulo.
