The name that stands out is that of São Paulo striker Adriano. He makes his return to the Canarinha after almost a two-year hiatus. "His ability to play was never in doubt," said national team coach Dunga.
Brazil will prepare as they get ready to take on Paraguay in Asunción and arch-rivals Argentina in Belo Horizonte in June. Adriano was always a constant matchup problem for the Albicelestes especially with his pace and power up front.
Who could ever forget his memborable equalizer in the 2004 Copa America that virtually deflated the hopes of Argentina.
