Mano Menezes has thrown Hulk into Brazil’s starting line-up against China. The FC Zenit forward was impressive after coming off the bench last Friday to score the goal that spared Brazil’s blushes against South Africa. Leandrão Damião drops to the bench. Brazil struggled against a South Africa side ranked 74th in the FIFA World rankings and were roundly booed in São Paulo. The turnout in Recife is likely to be more sympathetic against a China side ranked 78th.
