Soccer by Ives reports: “Robinho (pictured) and Dani Alves join Chelsea target Ramires as the three World Cup veterans named to a young Brazil squad for the August 10th friendly against the United States at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey. Young sensations Neymar and Paulo Henrique Ganso and World Cup snub Alexandre Pato were also called up by newly-named Brazil manager Mano Menezes.”
Fast but lacking in leadership. Thus, beatable, provided we field our World Cup team (hint, hint, whoever our coach is).
Here is the full squad:
Alexandre Pato (AC Milan), André (Santos), André Santos (Fenerbahçe), Carlos Eduardo (Hoffenheim), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), David Luíz (Benfica), Diego Tardelli (Atlético Mineiro), Ederson (Lyon), Paulo Henrique Ganso (Santos), Henrique (Racing Santander), Hernanes (São Paulo), Jeferson (Botafogo), Jucilei (Corinthians), Lucas (Liverpool), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Neymar (Santos), Rafael (Manchester United), Ramires (Benfica), Renan (Avaí), Rever (Atlético Mineiro), Robinho (Santos), Sandro (Internacional), Thiago Silva (AC Milan), Victor (Grêmio)
