Brazil x Australia: probable starting line-ups 7 September 2013
Brazil take on Australia on Saturday in the Mané Garrincha in Brasília. Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side are hoping to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat to Switzerland last month. Brazil are without Daniel Alves, Hulk, and Fred who all withdrew from the squad due to injury. Chelsea’s Oscar twisted an ankle in training and is doubtful for Saturday. Club team mate, Ramires, is on standby.
After the Australia match, Brazil fly to the USA for a friendly against Portugal.
