Robinho & Elano Named In Brazil Squad

Google language translator


Manchester City's very own Robinho and Elano have both been called up for the Brazil squad scheduled to play Italy on the 10 February at The Emirates Stadium.

Robinho and Elano are the only players, besides Manchester United's Anderson, to represent the Premier League, in a team that only includes Europe-based players.

Both players can expect a busy period as they will have to play four games in the space of 12 days.

The shock addition to Dunga;s Brazil side is uncapped Fiorentina midfielder Melo who has recently impressed the manager with his strong club performances. On the other hand, Juventus Amauri, who was expected to be included in the squad, has been left out after he has also considered playing for Italy.

Here is Brazil's full 22-man squad:

Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Doni (Roma); Maicon (Inter Milan), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Adriano Correia (Sevilla), Lucio (Bayern Munich), Juan (Roma), Thiago Silva (Milan), Luisao (Benfica); Gilberto Silva (Panathinaikos), Josue (Wolfsburg), Anderson (Manchester United), Felipe Melo (Fiorentina), Elano (Manchester City), Julio Baptista (Roma), Kaka (Milan); Ronaldinho (Milan), Robinho (Manchester City), Alexandre Pato (Milan), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Adriano (Inter Milan).

Where did you find that pic of Elano? What a dodgy barnet! All he needs is a big bushy moustache and hey presto: Elano is a pornstar, na na na na!
