Brazil are in action for the last time this year when they take on Portugal in a friendly in the newly-built 20,000 capacity estádio Bezerrão in Brasília on Wednesday.

Dunga’s men have not scored at home since November 2007 when Luís Fabiano struck against Uruguay in the estádio Morumbi in São Paulo. Since then Brazil have drawn 0-0 with Argentina, Bolivia and Colombia in World Cup qualifying games.

Manchester United’s Anderson is expected to come in for Josué in midfield while Fluminense’s Thiago Silva has been given the nod over Bayern Munich’s Lúcio.

Brazil should start like this: Julio César, Maicon, Thiago Silva, Luisão, Kléber, Gilberto Silva, Anderson, Elano, Kaká, Robinho, Luís Fabiano
