The Brazil coach has named his squad for the upcoming international friendlies...Brazil coach Carlo Dunga has named his squad for the upcoming international friendlies against England on November 14 and against Oman three days later.
Dunga somewhat surprisingly opted to omit in form AC Milan attacker Alexandre Pato from his squad in order to make room for Porto striker Hulk, who is set to make his official debut for the Selecao.
Additionally, attacking midfielders Carlos Eduardo of German outfit TSG Hoffenheim and Michel Bastos of French powerhouse Olympique Lyon received their first call-up as well.
Roma duo Doni and Juan were both called-up by Dunga despite injuries, but it appears to be very much unlikely that the Romans will release the players for the friendly games due to their lack of fitness.
Goalkeepers: Julio Cesar (Inter), Doni (AS Roma).
Defenders: Maicon (Inter), Lucio (Inter), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Luisao (Benfica), Juan (AS Roma), Naldo (Werder Bremen), Fabio Aurelio (Liverpool)
Midfielders: Michel Bastos (Olympique Lyon), Gilberto Silva (Panathinaikos), Josue (VfL Wolfsburg), Lucas (Liverpool), Felipe Melo (Juventus), Alex (Spartak Moscow), Julio Baptista (AS Roma), Carlos Eduardo (TSG Hoffenheim), Ramires (Benfica), Elano (Galatasaray), Kaka (Real Madrid)
Attackers: Robinho (Manchester City), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Nilmar (Villarreal), Hulk (FC Porto)
