Reports are out claiming that Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista is thrilled with his first call-up to the Brazil squad.
The former Villarreal central defender was a late addition to Dunga’s squad for next Sunday’s friendly against Chile after Paris Saint-Germain pair David Luiz and Marquinhos suffered injuries.
“I am very happy with the news, and it is a dream for any player to wear the shirt of your country,” Gabriel said.
“I’ll play the best possible way. It is a valuable opportunity and I hope that is the first call of many.
“It will be an incentive for me to continue working hard at Arsenal. It will not be easy, because the Brazilian team has great quality, but I will work hard to get my place in the team.”
