City’s Ederson proud of Brazil call-up

Ederson says he is proud to have received his first Brazil call-up as he adjusts to the Premier League with Manchester City.

The 23-year-old was signed from Benfica in the off-season and, although he was previously included in a provisional Brazil squad for the Copa America Centenario, he has now been handed the opportunity to compete for a first international cap in World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia.

And the City goalkeeper was thrilled to see his hard work pay off as he reaches another significant milestone.

“I am very happy to have been called up by the national team,” Ederson told City’s official website. “It’s indeed another achievement in my career and I’ve worked a lot and very hard for this moment.
