Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has declared the Brazil players “must respect” Saudi Arabian customs during their trip to the Kingdom.
The Canarinho are set to play hosts Saudi Arabia on Friday and bitter rivals Argentina next Tuesday.They will first run-out at Riyadh’s King Saud University Stadium, before travelling to Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City.
Watch Ederson’s reply below when quizzed about the imminent matches:
“We don’t want to take any risks and we are monitoring it every day.
“I would say he is 50-50 at the minute for the Ireland game.”
That said, the 32-year-old is one of the highest-scoring defenders in the history of European football – regardless of whether he is on spot-kick duty or not.
And, ahead of Spain’s upcoming international clashes against Wales and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ramos challenged club team-mate Dani Ceballos to a penalty duel.
