    Any speculations on who the new people are?

    I'm calling for Hernane for Robinho and
    Fernandinho(healthy?) for the injured Lucas Leiva

    Is Fred healthy? Cause I dont see any changes to the forwards. ....Neymar, Jo, Hulk, Robinho and I can see L. Daimao getting the recall if Fred's not up to par!!

    Yes I`d like to see Damiao get a recall, he hasnt done anything wrong apart from getting injured which can happen to anyone. Is Fred still womanising and partying? Someone needs to grab hold of him by the scruff of the neck and tell him he can do that AFTER the Copa. I have to say I have never liked the idea of Jo in the NT, so maybe a straight replacement?

    There are rumors that Hernane will be called.

    And I hope Coutinho appear in the list. He deserves a chance.

    Sorry no, I think we are stacked in midfield and Coutinho is a fairweather player hiding behind a Luis Suarez supershow. We need players who can turn it on day in day out regardless of whether Suarez is playing, and Coutinho is nothing without Suarez, does not deserve a place, only a Liverpool fan would push for his inclusion.

    Who is it then? Maybe he`s busy writing for a rival website i.e. Sambafoot.

    sigh....I still think he'll call Fred, he is already training again. Hernane or Walter still need to be tested also.

    Didn't expect Rafinha to be called. Everything else was expected though. I'm guessing the rest will be a LB, CB, AM, 2 GK and 2 strikers.

    Only 4 more call-ups from Brazil for March, apparently he will be taking 20, not 23 to South Africa.

    I think it's pretty safe to assume Rafinha and Fernandinho will get at least 45 mins if they make a good impression on Scolari, hopefully they start just because that gives us more time to see them, but I doubt they will.

    Then whoever the second forward is also get a half and the rest is basically nothing new. I hope we'll see a coherent performance and a Brazil team creating chances so we go into the May call-up on a positive note.

    I dont know why Diego Alves wasn't given a chance? He's the only Brazilian goalkeeper that's playing regular top football right now!!

    A bit of a head scratcher. He is a good PK stopper too.

    Once again Scolari's bias is clearly shown, he has publicly said he's a big fan of Bayern Munich and watches all their games. Rafinha selection is more proof of that, when there are other better options than him. A bench warmer for two years plays a couple of game for bayern now he's selecao material.

    Jo seems tobe the 2014 version of Luizao ... although Jo hasn't done any notable act.
