Scolari names Brazil squad for Chile, Honduras fixtures

AC Milan forward Robinho, Chelsea's Willian and PSG defender Marquinhos are among the new arrivals while Lucas Leiva, Ramires and Victor have retained their places in the squad.
Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has finalized the 22-man squad that will face Honduras and Chile in the Gillette International Soccer Series next month.

AC Milan forward Robinho and Chelsea winger Willian have earned recalls while Lucas Leiva, Ramires and Atletico Mineiro goalkeeper Victor have all retained their places in the squad.

Nineteen-year-old Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos will be hoping to make his international debut following some impressive performances for the reigning French champions since making the move to Ligue 1 from Roma earlier this year.

Roma fullback Maicon returns to the group after injury forced him to sit out of Brazil’s victories over South Korea and Zambia earlier this month.

The Selecao, who have now won 11 of their last 10 games, will meet Honduras in Miami on Nov. 16 before heading to Toronto to face Chile on Nov. 19.
