Brazil coach Dunga was forced to make more changes to his squad for the upcoming fixtures against Canada, Venezuela, Paraguay and Argentina after Chelsea’s Alex declared himself unfit.

The London based player, who was on the bench for Chelsea’s defeat in the Champions League final vs Manchester United, informed the Brazilian Football Federation of his unavailability on Thursday.

The replacements are Palmeiras’ Henrique who will step in for the friendlies against Canada and Venezuela; and Fluminense’s talented youngster, Thiago Silva, (photo) who will fill in during the World cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Argentina.
