Liverpool’s Brazilian stars are set to be named as substitutes for their friendly against El Salvador on Wednesday.
With the clash against El Salvador set to take place at the FedExField in Maryland at 1:30am BST on Wednesday, the Brazilians faced the prospect of having to start three games in a week – on two different continents.
However, the trio are all expected to be named on the substitutes bench with Brazil coach Tite drafting in Neto between the sticks for Alisson.

Fabinho, who started as a right-back against the US, is replaced by Porto full-back Èder Militão.
Everton forward Richarlison replaces Firmino in attack whilst Neymar and Philippe Coutinho start their second consecutive friendly match.
Despite the trio not being able to come back earlier to Merseyside, the news will be welcomed by Liverpool manager Klopp who would have been worried about his players’ over-exertions.
Liverpool have arranged a private jet to bring the Brazilians back to the United Kingdom following their stateside friendlies.
