Flamengo's Diego Maurico training for the tough job of replacing Neymar

Brazil’s talent packed U20 team go into tonight’s fixture versus Ecuador knowing that a win is required to keep their hopes of qualifying for the London Olympics alive.
Ney Franco’s side beat Ecuador 1-0 in the first phase but will be without their most influential player, Neymar, who is suspended. First choice central defenders; Bruno Uvini (injured) Juan (suspended) are also out. Saimon and Romário should come in at the back. Diego Maurício will fill in for Neymar.
If Brazil win, they’ll be well placed for the final game on Saturday versus Uruguay.
Uruguay are group leaders on seven points. Brazil and Argentina are on six. Ecuador have five.
Brazil (probable): Gabriel, Danilo, Saimon, Romário, Alex Sandro, Fernando, Casemiro, Lucas, Oscar, Diego Maurício, Willian José.
Coach: Ney Franco
Ecuador (possible): John Jaramillo, Mario Pineira, John Narváez, Dennys Quiñónez, Eder Fuertes, Fernando Gaibor, Dixon Arroyo, Juan Cazares, Marcos Caicedo, Marlon de Jesús, Edson Montaño
Coach: Sixto Vizuete
Stadium: Universidad Nacional San Agustín, Arequipa, Peru
Kick off: 0010 (Brasília), 0210 (London)
Officials: Victor Carrillo (Peru), Cesar Escano (Peru), Jorge Urrego (Venezuela)

    Any undiscovered gems at this tournement?
    Could they do a job at the City Ground or would we need to lend them out to Burton or mansfield to toughen them up.

    From that starting line-up Lucas, Casemiro, Danilo or Alex Sandro at the City Ground would make my day/month/year!!
