Brazil squad for Turkey and Austria friendlies November 2014
Dunga has named his squad for the games versus Turkey in Istanbul 12th November and Austria in Vienna six days later.
With the Brazilian league and Copa do Brasil moving into important phases, Dunga has limited his squad to Europe based players.
Shakhtar’s Luiz Adriano, and Hoffenheim’s Roberto Firmino, get their first call-ups. PSG’s Lucas Moura also gets another chance.
Dunga has got off to a decent start since he returned to the helm. Brazil have beaten Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Japan, and have yet to concede.
The matches against Turkey and Austria will be the South American’s last outings of the year. Brazil will only be in action again in March 2015.
