Neymar alongside Mano Menezes

Brazil face Scotland in Arsenal’s Emirates stadium on Sunday with coach Mano Menezes hoping to end a run of defeats. 1-0 losses to Argentina and France have meant recalls for some of the more experienced players who last turned out for Brazil in the World Cup in South Africa.
But Menezes also has an eye on the upcoming Copa America that kicks off in July and the London Olympics in 2012.
With Alexandre Pato and Nilmar injured, the coach hands Internacional striker Leandro Damião his first cap.
Real Madrid’s left wing back is also missing. André Santos fills in.
Brazil (probable): Julio César, Daniel Alves, Lúcio, Thiago Silva, André Santos, Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Elano, Jadson, Neymar, Leandro Damião
Coach: Mano Menezes
Scotland (confirmed): McGregor, Hutton, G Caldwell, Berra, Crainey, Adam, Brown, Morrison, McArthur, Whittaker, Miller
Venue: Emirates Stadium
Officials: Howard Webb, Steve Child, Adam Watts (all England)
Date: 27/3/2011
Kick off: 1000 (Brasilia) 1400 (BST)

    A decent display from Brazil overall but the game was somewhat overshadowed by the “banana” incident involving Neymar and some young lad from Germany.
