The Selecao ace has made a full recovery from a suspected muscular problem. He may even be involved in this weekend's match...
Both club and country feared the worst earlier this week when a clash with Naldo in training saw the Bianconero limp off to receive treatment. A long-term muscular problem was mooted initially.
However, Tuttosport reports that the combative midfielder shook off the knock and took full part in Friday's final pre-match training session.
Melo showed no signs of trouble and was able to play in the mini-match at the end of the session.
Coach Carlos Dunga is likely to make a decision on whether his man can play shortly before the friendly.
The news will be welcomed in Turin because Melo has struggled several times with injury-related problems already this term.
Meanwhile, Brazil's game with England kicks off at 18:00 CET in Doha.
