Richarlison has retained his place in the Brazil squad ahead of their friendlies next month, while there is also a recall for Gabriel Jesus.
The Everton forward won his first caps for his country in the recent friendlies against the United States and El Salvador. He appeared as a substitute against the USA before starting and hitting a double in Brazil's 5-0 win over El Salvador in Maryland.
Now he has retained his spot for the upcoming fixtures against Saudi Arabia on October 12 and Argentina four days later.
The 21-year-old scored three goals in two games following his move to Everton from Watford in the summer and, following his sending off against Bournemouth last month, is in line to return to action against Arsenal, live on Super Sunday, after completing a three-game ban.
Jesus was not named in Brazil coach Tite's first post-World Cup squad earlier this month but returns to the side along with Manchester City team-mates Ederson and Danilo.
There are also call-up's for Liverpool trio Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino while Manchester United's Fred is also included.
Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Marcelo have been named in the group, while Barcelona's Malcom wins his first call-up to the senior side.
Absentees from the squad include Andreas Pereira of Manchester United and Chelsea's Willian, as well as PSG's Thiago Silva and Juventus winger Douglas Costa.
