Final squad of Brazil for the world cup

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari finally announced his World Cup squad and put a full stop on all the anticipations of football lovers.  The obvious thing about the squad is that most of the selections are from the players who won last year's Confederations Cup. 16 players who were in the team that won last year's warm-up tournament by beating world champion Spain in the final are selected. But the most surprising thing about the squad is that people are going to miss their hot favorite stars such as Ronaldinho, Kaka and Robinho. Beside that the squad also includes 2010 tournament’s experienced players -Julio Cesar, Silva, Alves, Maicon and Ramires. Though Scolari succeeded in making a talented and a competitive squad but people are surely going to miss out Kaka and Robinho.  Justifying his selection, Scolari said,"The young players create a great environment and they enjoy what they do. Sometimes it is easier to work with them than with the more experienced players."


The squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers :
•    Julio Cesar (Toronto FC)
•    Jefferson (Botafogo)
•    Victor (Atletico Mineiro)
Defenders :
•    David Luiz (Chelsea)
•    Dante (Bayern Munich)
•    Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain),
•    Henrique (Napoli)
•    Maicon (Roma)
•    Dani Alves (Barcelona)
•    Marcelo (Real Madrid)
•    Maxwell (Paris Saint-Germain)

Midfielders :
•    Luiz Gustavo (Wolfsburg)
•    Paulinho (Tottenham)
•    Fernandinho (Manchester City)
•    Ramires (Chelsea)
•    Oscar (Chelsea)
•    Willian (Chelsea)
•    Hernanes (Inter Milan)

Strikers :

•    Hulk (Zenit St. Petersburg)
•    Bernard (Shakhtar Donetsk)
•    Neymar (Barcelona)
•    Jo (Atletico Mineiro)
•    Fred (Fluminense)
