The 31-year-old full-back is in line to earn his first cap at international level following his call-up to Selecao for their latest exhibition match in Europe in AugustLuis Felipe Scolari has handed a first call-up to Maxwell for Brazil's friendly with Switzerland in an otherwise unchanged squad from their successful Confederations Cup campaign.
The Selecao travel to Basel on August 14 fresh off the back of their tournament success earlier this summer, in which they beat world champions Spain 3-0 in the final.
And it seems that 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 in June, with the Paris Saint-Germain defender the only fresh inclusion.
Squad in full:
|Thiago Silva||Paris Saint-Germain|
|Luiz Gustavo||Bayern Munich|
