RIO DE JANEIRO: Brazil has called up eight England-based players for October's triple header of South American World Cup qualifiers amid hopes of a resolution to a standoff with Premier League clubs, the Brazilian Football Confederation said on Friday.

The 30-man squad includes Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Ederson, Liverpool duo Alisson and Fabinho, Chelsea's Thiago Silva, Fred of Manchester United, Leeds United's Raphina and Tottenham's Emerson Royal.

Head coach Tite also named five Brazil-based players for the fixtures against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay.

The announcement comes after Premier League clubs barred their Brazilian players from taking part in September's World Cup qualifiers because of England's coronavirus quarantine rules.

It is understood world football governing body FIFA is close to reaching an agreement with the British government to exempt Brazilian players from quarantine upon their return.

"We've had lots of positive meetings with FIFA, the Premier League and the British government, and we trust that there will be a positive solution next week," Brazil's national team coordinator Juninho Paulista said.

Brazil will meet Venezuela in Caracas on October 7, Colombia in Barranquilla on October 10 and Uruguay in Manaus on October 14.

The five-time world champions lead the 10-team South American zone standings with eight wins from as many matches.
