Cape Town - Manchester City goalkeeper
Ederson accepts that his Liverpool counterpart Alisson is the first-choice shot-stopper for Brazil head coach Tite.
Alisson, who left Roma to sign for
Liverpool in the off-season, has established himself as the Selecao's number
one goalkeeper and has made 32 international appearances.
Meanwhile, Ederson has played only once for
Brazil but will be given an opportunity in the friendly against Saudi Arabia on
Friday, before Alisson is restored to the starting line-up ahead of the clash
with Argentina on Tuesday.
“I think there is a lot of similarity
between the two of us. He is having a very positive season start at Liverpool,”
Ederson told Globo Esporte.
“Here, he is one step ahead of me, he
played in a World Cup. Brazil is well served with goalkeepers. Those who enter
will do a good job.
“Representing the Selecao is a very great
expectation, being able to play is even greater.
“I've had lunch with Alisson when he
arrived at Liverpool. We have a very good relationship. He's a friend.”
