Brazil x South Africa: probable starting line-ups here

Luiz Felipe Scolari has named part of his squad for the friendly against South Africa in Soccer City, Johannesburg. For the moment, Scolari has opted to delay calling up his Brazil-based players. The coach has decided to wait until just three days before the game before confirming the complete line up to give himself more time to monitor the fitness of key players such as Fluminense’s Fred.
Manchester City’s Fernandinho and Chelsea’s Willian are in, but there’s no place for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
This will be Brazil’s last fixture before Felipão names his squad for the World Cup on 7 May.

*Fred (Forward Fluminense), Jô (Forward Atlético Mineiro), Jefferson (Goalkeeper Botafogo) were added to the squad 24 February 2014

Brazil squad in full
Goalkeepers: Julio César (QPR)
Centre-backs: Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-German), David Luiz (Chelsea), Dante (Bayern Munich)
Wing-backs: Rafinha (Bayern Munich), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Marcelo (Real Madrid)
Midfielders: Luiz Gustavo (Wolfsburg), Paulinho (Tottenham), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Ramires (Chelsea), Oscar (Chelsea)
Forwards: Willian (Chelsea), Hulk (Zenit), Neymar (Barcelona), Bernard (Shakhtar Donestk)

    Hi Jon Cotteril, in my view Scolari could have also selected Fernando Reges from Porto. He can act as cover for Luis Gustavo at the world cup. Kaka can also be considered to cover Oscar and provide an extra dimension, i hope to see either one of Hernane , Leandro Damiao or Walter selected alongside Fred
