Brazil name squad for friendly against Scotland


Brazilian National Coach Mano Menezes has announced his squad that will face Scotland in an international friendly to be played at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, on Sunday 27th March.

Just three days into the general sale of tickets and over 30,000 tickets have been snapped up, with around 20,000 of these being bought by the Tartan Army and those living in and around London.

And while the big names of Robinho and Ronaldinho are missing, Brazil will still have the likes of Dani Alves [Barcelona], Alexandre Pato [AC Milan] and Julio Cesar [Inter Milan] to wow the crowd with.

Scotland will name their squad on the 17th March, so as not to give Brazil too much of a upperhand. Tickets are still available from the Arsenal website, priced from £30.
