Denilson Earns Call-Up
My inability to stop writing today will continue with the news that Arsenal midfielder Gilberto has withdrawn from the Brazil squad to play Switzerland on Wednesday and has been replaced by Arsenal`s other Brazilian - Denilson. The midfield starlet is captain of the Brazil U19 team but this is his first ever call-up to the full squad.
Bert says that he has withdrawn from the squad for Wednesday`s game for 'personal reasons`.
Denilson has made only two appearances for the Gunners since his transfer deadline day move from Sao Paulo. Denilson got the nod ahead of former Arsenal midfielder Edu, now at Valencia.
Gilberto should return in time for this weekends game against Newcastle.
