Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in latest Brazil squad

Liverpool pair Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino have been named in the latest Brazil squad.

The Brazilian duo are included in Tite's 23-man squad for World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Paraguay later this month.

Brazil travel to Uruguay on March 23 before hosting Paraguay on March 28.

Brazil are currently top of the standings in the South American preliminaries for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, four points ahead of Uruguay.

Coutinho has made 23 international caps for his country, scoring six goals, while Firmino has netted five times in his 13 appearances for Brazil.

Sources told ESPN FC in November that Liverpool split the bill of a chartered plane with Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in order to ensure their Brazil internationals return to their respective clubs as soon as possible.
