Dunga’s first Brazil squad features four representatives from Stamford Bridge alongside a well-earned call-up for Anfield star.
New Brazil manager Dunga has named his first squad of his second spell as Selecao manager, with plenty of bold selections and omissions.
QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar, FC Barcelona right back Dani Alves, Real Madrid’s Marcelo and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho are amongst the big names to have been cast aside, while Thiago Silva misses out through injury.
In their places, there are call-ups for some exciting new Brazilian talents as Dunga ushers in a new era.
