thumbnail Hello,

The 31-year-old is in line to earn his first cap at the international level following his call up to Selecao for the friendly in Europe in August.

Luis Felipe Scolari handed a first call up to Maxwell for Brazil's friendly with Switzerland in an otherwise unchanged squad from the successful Confederations Cup campaign.

The Selecao travel to Basel on Aug. 14 fresh off the back of their tournament success earlier this summer, in which they beat world champion Spain 3-0 in the final.

And it seems the 64-year-old is wary of tinkering with a tried-and-tested formula by naming a near-identical selection to that which swept all before them last month, with the Paris Saint-Germain defender the only fresh inclusion.

Squad in full:

Goalkeepers  
Julio Cesar QPR
Jefferson Botafogo
Defenders  
Thiago Silva Paris Saint-Germain
Maxwell Paris Saint-Germain
Dante Bayern Munich
David Luiz Chelsea
Dani Alves Barcelona
Jean Fluminense
Marcelo Real Madrid

Fernando Shakhtar Donetsk
Hernanes Lazio
Luiz Gustavo Bayern Munich
Bernard Atletico Mineiro
Oscar Chelsea
Paulinho Tottenham
Attackers
