Oscar, David Luiz, and Ramires to start for Brazil x South Africa friendly 8 September 2012
Brazil take on South Africa in a friendly at the estádio Morumbi on Friday. Just over 64,000 tickets were made available and a good crowd is expected for the holiday Friday. With PSG’s Thiago Silva injured and out of the squad, Vasco centreback, Dedé, comes in.
Since taking charge in August 2012 and has 33 games under his belt, but this is only the fourth time that Menezes has led a side out in Brazil. In the previous three outings Brazil drew 0-0 with the Netherlands, beat Romania 1-0, and won 2-0 against an Argentina B-side.
South Africa coach, Gordon Igesund, could be in for a tough time as he takes charge of his game for Bafana Bafana.
