Matheus Cunha is part of the Brazilian national team for the first time. Because Gabriel Jesus of ManCity was injured, the 21-year-old Berliner was nominated again. Before that, he had not only caused a stir in the Bundesliga.
Attacker Matheus Cunha of Bundesliga club Hertha BSC has been appointed as successor to the Brazilian national team for the first time. National coach Tite nominated the 21-year-old, who moved from RB Leipzig to Berlin in January, Friday for the injured Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
Five-time World Champion Brazil will start their way to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on October 9 against Bolivia and on October 13 in Peru. Gabriel Jesus sustained an injury in the English Premier League against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.
Cunha took herself into the spotlight earlier this year as a goalscorer in the South American Olympic qualifier. For the Brazilian U23, the forward scored a total of 14 goals in 16 games.
