The 28-year-old, who has been a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this term, played 45 minutes against Saudi Arabia in October 2018 before being an unused substitute in a 1-0 win over fierce rivals Argentina in the same month.

Veteran full-back Dani Alves, now with Sao Paolo, is also back in the squad at the age of 38 while Benfica’s Lucas Verissimo has been granted a first call-up. However, there is no place for United full-back Alex Telles.
