Uncapped Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose and Besiktas midfielder Anderson Talisca were the surprise inclusions in Brazil's squad to face Russian Federation and Germany in friendlies later this month, as head coach Tite announced his squad on Monday.

Willian Jose, a starter with Spain's Real Sociedad, will be seeing his first action with the national team as a substitute for Neymar, who is recovering from a foot surgery.

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.

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

Also selected for a possible debut is Anderson Talisca, who plays for Turkish club Besiktas.

Those games on 23 and 27 March will be Brazil's last warm-ups before heading to their base in Sochi, southern Russian Federation, for the World Cup starting 14 June.

In what was the coach's final squad before settling on his 23-man group for this year's World Cup, Valencia goalkeeper Neto, Besiktas star Anderson Talisca and Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose have joined the Selecao.

The Russia game will take place in Moscow before Brazil fly to Berlin to face Germany.

Forwards: Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino, Douglas Costa, Taison, Willian Jose.
