“I have no doubt that they are players ready to wear our shirt,” Dorival said of the two in a news conference on Friday. “And they will play a great role in these two games.”

Dorival’s tenure begins with a trip to Wembley to take on England on March 23 followed by a meeting with Spain in Madrid three days later.
