RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Brazil coach Tite has called up uncapped Porto right-back Eder Militao for friendlies against the United States and El Salvador, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Sunday.
The 20-year-old replaces Corinthians defender Fagner, who was cut after suffering a hamstring injury.
Fagner is the third player to be omitted from Tite's original 24-man squad. Fluminense striker Pedro was ruled out with a knee injury while Beijing Guoan midfielder Renato Augusto withdrew for personal reasons.
Tite named Everton forward Richarlison as a substitute for Pedro but was unable to replace Augusto because his omission was not related to injury.
Brazil face the United States in New Jersey on Friday and El Salvador in Washington four days later.
