Menezes picks Pato, Ganso, Neymar in Brazil debut

July 27th, 2010

Mano Menezes

New Brazil coach Mano Menezes chose a young roster Monday for the Selecao’s first match after the World Cup, picking AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato, Santos scoring sensation Neymar and Santos midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso for the Aug. 10 exhibition against the United States.

Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva and Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva also are on the 24-man roster for the match at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Only four of the players picked were on Brazil’s 23-man World Cup roster: Barcelona defender Daniel Alves, Benfica midfielder Ramires, AC Milan defender Thiago Silva and Santos forward Robinho, who is on loan from Manchester City.

Kaka, Luis Fabiano and goalkeeper Julio Cesar were not selected Monday.

Menezes accepted the Brazil job on Saturday, a day after Fluminense would not release Muricy Ramalho from his contract.

Menezes replaced Dunga, fired after Brazil’s 2-1 loss to Netherlands in the World Cup quarterfinals.

The squad:

Goalkeepers: Jefferson (Botafogo), Renan (Avai), Victor (Gremio)

Defenders: Andre Santos (Fenerbahce, Turkey), Daniel Alves (Barcelona, Spain), David Luiz (Benfica, Portugal), Henrique (Racing Santander, Spain), Marcelo (Real Madrid, Spain), Rafael da Silva (Manchester United, England), Rever (Atletico Mineiro), Thiago Silva (AC Milan, Italy)

Midfielders: Carlos Eduardo (Hoffenheim, Germany), Ederson (Lyon, France), Hernanes (Sao Paulo), Jucilei (Corinthians), Lucas Leiva (Liverpool, England), Paulo Henrique Ganso (Santos), Ramires (Benfica, Portugal), Sandro (Internacional)

Forwards: Andre (Santos), Neymar (Santos), Alexandre Pato (AC Milan, Italy), Robinho (Santos), Diego Tardelli (Atletico Mineiro)
