Luiz Felipe Scolari has named his squad to face Bolivia in Santa Cruz de La Sierra in the Estádio Ramon “Taihuichi” Aguilera 6th April. The coach has called up only Brazil based players for the fixture that was arranged following the death of San José fan Kevin Espada during the game against Corinthians in the Libertadores in February. The squad features four players from Brazil’s Under-20 squad (Matheus Vidotto, Douglas Santos, Dória, Leandro Moura). Brazil will meet up on Friday and fly to Bolivia in the evening. Shortly after the match the seleção will return to Brazil and the players will be available to play for their clubs in the state championships.
