CONFIRMED: Brazil line-up v Japan - Chelsea stars dominate

Chelsea have three players in the Brazil side to play Japan.

Brazil: Jefferson, Danilo, Miranda, Gil, Filipe Luis, Luiz Gustavo, Elias, Willian, Oscar, Diego Tardelli, Neymar

Brazil head into their friendly game against Japan off the back of three straight wins following their disappointing home World Cup campaign.

That campaign saw heavy defeats at the hands of Germany and then the Netherlands in the third place play-off game, which left Luiz Felipe Scolari looking for a new job.

Dunga took over and instantly repaired the damage with wins against Colombia and Ecuador before a huge win against South American arch rivals Argentina.

The Premier League is fortunate to be graced with so many gifted Brazil players with Liverpool well represented through the likes of Lucas and Philippe Coutinho while Chelsea star Oscar is a regular fixture for his national team.

There will be plenty of opportunities to impress under the new coach as he looks to continue this fine run of form before players return to their club sides after the international break.
