thumbnail Hello,

The Selecao will contain 24 players from the Brazilian top-flight, as the ex-Corinthians coach has decided to cut all European-based players from the squad for the 'Superclasico'

Brazil coach Mano Menezes has included Ronaldinho and Neymar in his 24-man squad to face Argentina on September 14, with the selection being made up wholly of players from the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A.

After overseeing a narrow 1-0 win on Monday night against Ghana, the much-maligned tactician has made early preparations for their 'Superclasico de las Americas' encounter.

The European contigent of the squad has been dropped in its entirety, as nine new faces enter the squad; including Sao Paulo defender Rhodolfo, who has been linked with Juventus in recent days, and midfielder Casemiro, who has reportedly gained the interest of various European giants.

The squad is listed below:

Goalkeepers: Fabio (Cruzeiro), Rafael (Santos), Jefferson (Botafogo)

Defenders: Danilo (Santos), Mario Fernandes (Gremio), Bruno Cortes (Botafogo), Kleber (Internacional), Dede (Vasco), Rever (Atletico-MG), Rhodolfo (Sao Paulo), Henrique (Palmeiras)

Midfielders: Casemiro (Sao Paulo), Paulinho (Corinthians), Ralf (Corinthians), Romulo (Vasco), Cicero (Sao Paulo), Lucas (Sao Paulo), Oscar (Internacional), Renato Abreu (Flamengo), Thiago Neves (Flamengo)

Forwards: Fred (Fluminense), Leandro Damiao (Internacional), Neymar (Santos), Ronaldinho (Flamengo)
