Dunga’s first call up sees a new crop of players enter the fold and raises some interesting scenarios. T. Silva misses out thru injury so there’s room for PSG wonder kid Marquinhos. D. Alves and Marcelo make way for the (young) Porto duo of Alex Sandro and Danilo along with 29 year old backup Felipe Luiz. I like this change. Some new blood is needed at those positions and will motivate Marcelo to earn his call up. The midfield has some exciting prospects also. Coutinho, Everton, and Goulart are all inventive, dynamic players and will be an interesting lineup if a combination of the three are selected to start. The lack of options is still apparent at forward. Our only true world class option remains Neymar which may have to do for now till someone comes to front. I’d love to see Pato or L.Damiao regain their form but seems unlikely. Looking forward to watching the new team play (live, hopefully) . - tB
