Confederations Cup winners, Brazil, face their first test when they take on Switzerland in Basel on Wednesday.
Luiz Felipe Scolari called up the majority of the players that formed Brazil’s successful squad in July. Chelsea defender, David Luiz, picked up a knock and is doubtful against the Swiss. Bayern Munich man, Dante, is on standby.
Brazil are now eleven games unbeaten after Felipão lost his re-start against England in February.
