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.”
