RIO DE JANEIRO, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Juventus defender Bremer and Corinthians striker Yuri Alberto have been drafted into Brazil's squad for a friendly against Morocco.

The pair replace Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos and Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison, who were ruled out of Saturday's clash in Tangier due to injury.

Marquinhos has an abdominal strain while Richarlison suffered an unspecified muscle injury in his right leg.

The last time Morocco and Brazil met in an official match was in 1998 when Brazil prevailed 2-0 in Belen. The teams also crossed paths in the group stage of the 1998 World Cup in France, a match Brazil won 3-0.

Brazil will be led by national under-20 team manager Ramon Manezes, who took over on a caretaker basis following the departure of Tite in December.
