Amauri gets Brazil call up

January 31, 2009 at 13:49 1 comment


Juventus forward, Amauri, has been asked to replace the injured Luís Fabiano for Brazil’s friendly vs Italy.

Amauri is awaiting his Italian citizenship papers and is still undecided whether he really wants to play for Brazil or Italy.

Amauri has scored eleven goals for Juventus this season and it remains uncertain whether the Italians will release the player for the game on February 10th in London. Amauri has spent most of his career in Italy appearing for the likes of Chievo and Palermo.

On Friday, Luís Fabiano’s club, Seville, withdrew their front man from the Brazil squad after he picked up a problem with is left knee.

* On 2nd February, Amauri telephoned the CBF to inform them that Juventus have refused to release him for the friendly. After the call, coach Dunga took the decision not to look for any other replacement for Luís Fabiano.
