The 29-year-old has been capped nine times by his country to date and has been summoned back to the fold as cover for Fabinho who picked up a hamstring injury on Champions League duty for Liverpool this week.
Allan will join his Toffees team-mate Richarlison in Tite's Seleçao squad as they look to build on their opening CONMEBOL region group victories over Bolivia and Peru.

Personally, I still maintain he was arguably our best player vs Southampton.
And to allay the grumbles already posted on this good-news thread (it will be a fillip to his confidence), I doubt he will see any game time. There are plenty in the Brazilian squad ahead of him in his position. Just cover for an injured player and making up the squad numbers.

Especially maddening if it is a meaningless 'friendly', still the other side of me is glad he has received International recognition, while he has been with us. I suppose you can't have it both ways though.

South America starts World Cup qualification much earlier than other regional football federations because all ten countries play each other home and away in a single league. 18 games in total, so a lot to squeeze in.
The tasty one for Blues to look out for will be the next international break in the springtime: Colombia v Brazil on 24 March. 5 days later, Brazil v Argentina.

Casemiro of Real Madrid and City's Fernandino.
Allan's good, but it's hard to make a case for him over those two.

Either that or he will come back with a split scrotum, only one bollock, do his hamstring and be out till Christmas a nice bit of pessimism to even it up.

I just hope and pray that his injury nightmares are beyond him and us too.

I cant stand it when I see a team like Southampton overrunning our midfield, with more energy and desire. The inclusion of Tom Davies or Delph instead of Sigurdsson and Gordon instead of Iwobi may not have been enough but they would have made a better attempt at neutralising their midfield.

Hope Carlo gets the right blend of whoever's available against the Barcodes on Sunday.

It might not be so much his engine, but more hes been a tad slower getting about the pitch. Possibly a combination of not being quite 100% fit, and the middle of the park being made bigger, because Doucoure, keeps having to shift a little bit wider to cover for Rodriguez maybe?
I think the middle of the park has been to open in the last couple of matches, and its an area of the pitch were inches can create yards, and is also too wide of an area to patrol without real help, so hopefully Ancelotti can tweak his system, and make us a little harder to play against? Well at least until Richarlison comes back anyway.

I was shouting at the tv a few times against Southampton when he wouldnt back himself to attack the fullback and cause a bit of mayhem. Every time he stalled, dithered and made a secure possession pass, allowing the Southampton defenders to regroup and snuff out any threat.
Until he wakes up and starts using his god given skills rather than playing it conservatively he will be a peripheral player, at best.

when Allan went down at West Ham I thought at the time it looked a bad one. I couldn't believe it when they said a couple of weeks. I reckon he's playing within himself, in fact from the last two performances I'm convinced of it. It's like night and day watching the games at Spurs and Saints.

Cant comment on carrying an injury affecting him or anyone else
However tiredness can be no excuse for anyone in the squad

' people across the continent ' haven't suffered the pain and frustration that the lifelong match going fans have had to put up with over too many years now.
We are at last gaining some genuine traction - that's what interests me the most this season and will ultimately make everyone worldwide sit up and take notice anyway.

Aside from some fairly limited merchandising opportunities that bringing onboard new fans from South America, my main interest would be to what extent the up and coming talent in these countries aspiring to come to Everton. Being able to tap into the production line of Brazilian talent would be a massive bonus
