TEAM NEWS: Dani Alves out, Robinho back in for Brazil's clash against Ecuador

The South American giants have decided to make two changes to their formula for the decisive group encounter against Ecuador
Brazil national team coach Mano Menezes has decided to make two changes to the starting XI which took on Paraguay in Saturday's 2-2 Copa America draw as his side faces a crunch game against Ecuador in the final group match.

Menezes had caused a major surprise ahead of Brazil's second game in the competition by having Jadson replace Robinho in the starting XI after a goalless draw with Venezuela.

However, the Brazil coach has decided to bring the AC Milan forward back to the team, while replacing Daniel Alves, who was at fault in Paraguay's second goal, with Inter's Maicon.

Ecuador remain without Antonio Valencia as the Manchester United winger was deemed unfit to play.

Brazil: Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Thiago Silva, Andre Santos; Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Ganso, Robinho, Neymar; Alexandre Pato

Ecuador: Elizaga. Reasco, Araujo, Erazo, Ayovi; Minda, Noboa, Arroyo, Mendez; Benitez, Caicedo
