Brazil have called up Santos forward Gabriel Barbosa to replace suspended captain Neymar in their squad to face Paraguay.
Neymar was booked during Friday’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw against Uruguay and will miss Brazil’s next game of the CONMEBOL section in Asuncion on Tuesday.

Brazil are third in the CONMEBOL standings, with eight points from five matches, placing them above Paraguay and Argentina on goal difference.
