Brazil take on Italy tonight in London and a capacity crowd of around 60,000 are expected in the Emirates Stadium.

This is the fourth time Brazil have played at Arsenal’s home ground. The first was a 3-0 win over Argentina in 2006. a year later, Brazil lost 2-0 to Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Portugal. And in 2008, the South Americans beat Sweden 1-0 with a wonder goal from debut boy Alexandre Pato.

Brazil will be without Kaká, Luís Fabiano and Anderson who are all injured, and Amauri who Juventus refused to release.

Brazil are expected to start with: Julio César, Maicon, Lúcio, Juan, Marcelo, Gilberto Silva, Josué, Elano (Júlio Baptista), Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Robinho, Adriano.

Entry filed under: Brazil squad. Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , .
