Having returned to the helm of the Selecao at their darkest hour, Al Hain-Cole examines who Dunga can count upon to help restore his side to their free-flowing best

After a thoroughly un-Brazilian Brazil team suffered a crushing humiliation in front of an expectant home crowd at this summer’s World Cup, Friday night’s friendly against Colombia represents a fresh start under returning manager Dunga.

Brazil - Colombia Goalscorer Betting
Neymar to score anytime 13/10
Falcao to score anytime 21/10
Robinho to score anytime 21/10
Oscar to score anytime 13/5
James Rodriguez to score anytime 3/1
Ricardo Goulart  to score anytime 7/2
One of just 10 players retained from the 23-man World Cup squad, Neymar, will be under even more pressure to perform than usual as he captains the side in the absence of Thiago Silva.

The Barcelona man is priced at 13/10 (2.30) with Paddy Power to lift the gloom by striking a 36th goal in just 55 internationals, or 9/2 (5.50) to score the first of a new era.

With Fred retired, Jo seemingly out of the picture, and Hulk sidelined though injury, Robinho has been recalled to the Selecao for the first time in almost a year, and is on offer at 21/10 (3.10) to mark the occasion with a third goal in fourth internationals.

Aside from those two, Oscar is the only player to have reached double figures in this new-look Brazil side, and offers solid value at 13/5 (3.60) to find the back of the net in Miami.

Currently leading the domestic goalscorer charts with nine goals in just 14 Serie A matches, Ricardo Goulart is represents an interesting option at 7/2 (4.50) to grab a debut goal for is country, or even 11/1 (12.00) to open the scoring.

Meanwhile, after missing the World Cup through injury, new Manchester United signing Falcao is available at 7/5 (2.40) to get straight back into the swing of things with a 12th goal in the space of 19 matches for Los Cafeteros.

However, having lit up the competition in his absence, James Rodriguez surely offers strong value at 3/1 (4.00) to overshadow Falcao once again by finding the net for a ninth time in just eight games for Jose Pekerman’s outfit.
