Uncapped Botafogo defender Adryelson has been called up to Brazil’s squad for their FIFA World Cup qualifier against Uruguay, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Saturday.
The 25-year-old replaces Fluminense center-back Marcilio Mota, who sprained his left knee during a training session on Saturday.
Adryelson has made 65 starts for Botafogo since joining the club on a free transfer from Sport Recife in July 2022.
Uruguay and Brazil will meet at Estadio Centenario in Uruguayan capital Montevideo on Tuesday.
Brazil is currently second in the 10-team South American qualifying group with seven points from three games while Uruguay is fourth, three points further back.
