Brazil get their London Olympics campaign underway when they take on Egypt in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff later today.
Mano Menezes is forced to make one change to the side that beat Team GB 2-0 last week. First choice keeper, Rafael Cabral, is injured and has been ruled out of the competition. Fiorentina’s Neto comes in.
As well as the likes of Rafael Silva, Sandro Ranieri and Neymar, the focus is likely to be on Chelsea’s new signing Oscar who will start with the number ten shirt, and Manchester United target, Lucas Moura, who’ll be on the bench.
