Rio: Brazilian coach Tite on Monday made the best of injured star Neymar's forced absence by bringing new names into the national squad for friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany.

Willian Jose, a 26-year-old striker, was rewarded for his good season at Spanish side Real Sociedad with his first call up to the national side.

Both men were given the chance to impress in what was a larger than usual 25-man squad, Tite's last before naming the 23 who will go to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

This month's friendlies are to be the last tune-up games before the competition begins in June.

Doctors have yet to set a firm date for Neymar's return.

However, uncapped trio Valencia goalkeeper Neto, Besiktas midfielder Anderson Talisca and Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose will all get a chance to make their debut in the upcoming global friendlies.

This will be Brazil's first meeting with Germany after their disastrous 7-1 loss in the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, which also happened in the absence of Neymar.

"I want to give all the athletes opportunities right up until the end", Tite said.

The five-times world champions are without Neymar this month, following the PSG superstar's recent metatarsal injury - so the rest of the squad will be hoping to shine ahead of the World Cup.

Brazil take on Russian Federation and Germany in the next few weeks in a crucially important worldwide break.
