Shakhtar midfielder Taison has been summoned to the Brazil national football team
On September 1 and 6 (2 and 7 respectively for Ukraine) the Selecao will hold qualifiers for the World Cup 2018 against Ecuador and Colombia.
– This is the first call to the national team of my country, and I am very happy - Taison shared his emotions. - I must make the most of this chance. The national team has always been one of the most important goals for me. Thank God, now it is all happening. But above all, I need to set my mind on the Shakhtar game against Istanbul Basaksehir, which is very important for us. Only then I can think about the Brazil's national team.
It should be noted that after six qualifying rounds the Tite's squad is 6th in the standings. The Brazilians trail back by 4 points compared to Ecuador and Uruguay.
