thumbnail Hello,

The talented Brazil internationals will lead the bid for glory in the international tournament, which kicks off in Japan on December 8

Santos stars Neymar and Ganso are both set to feature in the upcoming Club World Cup, as the Copa Libertadores champions finalised their 23 man squad which will fight for the title in Japan.

The Brazilians released the list on Monday afternoon, and there were no surprises in the players who made the final cut. The biggest absence from the original 30-man shortlist is injured midfielder Adriano, who is one of seven players left out of the group.

Santos will enter the Club World Cup at the semi-final stage, where they will play the winner of Mexican side Monterrey's clash against either Auckland City or an as yet undetermined Japanese team.
