CONFIRMED: Brazil & Serbia line-ups - Chelsea and Spurs stars start

Here is how Brazil and Serbia will line up for this evening’s friendly match, with players from Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur featuring.

Brazil starting XI: Cesar, Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo, Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Oscar, Neymar, Hulk, Fred

Serbia starting XI: Stojkovic, Tosic, Ivanovic, Petrovic, Tadic, Kolarov, Matic, Jojic, Basta, Mitrovic, Markovic

Brazil face Serbia a week before they kick off this summer’s World Cup against Croatia. The tournament hosts will be hoping to finish their preparations on a high and coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has gone with a strong side.

The former Chelsea boss recently went on record to suggest that South American rivals Argentina are the most likely side to face Brazil in the final...if the hosts can get there. But there is a lot of football to be played before that can happen.

Brazil will also face Mexico and Cameroon in Group A and they have the hopes of a hugely excited nation on their shoulders.  Among the players on show tonight are Chelsea's Oscar and David Luiz and Tottenham Hotspur's Paulinho.

Serbia did not qualify for this summer’s tournament, meaning this evening is their players' only chance of getting one over one of football’s biggest sides prior to the new campaign.
