Brazil take on Bolivia in a friendly on Saturday in the Ramón Tahuichi Aguilera in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Luz Felipe Scolari has called up only Brazil based players for this hastily arranged fixture; the proceeds of which will go to the family of Kevin Beltran who died in February during the match between San José and Corinthians in the Libertadores.
Though Scolari’s choice of players was restricted, he has still come under criticism for calling up four Brazil Under-20 players who are unlikely to feature in the senior side’s upcoming games. One is goalkeeper, Matheus Vidotto, who has yet to appear for Corinthians first team. Scolari also raised eyebrows after calling up two left backs (André Santos and Douglas Santos) but no right back. Midfielder Jean may start in this position.
Scolari has lost one and drawn two in his return as coach of the seleção. Defeat to Bolivia will set the alarm bells ringing.
