Ronaldinho in; Kaka out.
Former Barcelona star Ronaldinho has been named in the Brazil squad for next month’s friendly with England but AC Milan target Kaka misses out.
QPR vs Manchester United tickets are now available for the match at Loftus Road on 23 February!
Ex-Chelsea boss Luis Felipe Scolari recalled the maverick 32-year-old for his first squad since taking over as Selecao boss for the second time.
Scolari, who was reappointed in November having previously led Brazil to their fifth World Cup triumph in Japan and South Korea in 2002, has named a 20-man squad for the game against England at Wembley on February 6.
Ronaldinho is now playing his club football for Atletico Mineiro of Belo Horizonte. The playmaker has history with England after his lobbed free-kick beat David Seaman from distance in the 2002 World Cup.
Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar, who had fallen out of favour under previous coach Mano Menezes, has also been recalled.
There are also three Chelsea players in the squad, with central defender David Luiz joining midfield duo Ramires and Oscar.
Brazil squad in full:
Goalkeepers: Diego Alves (Valencia/ESP), Julio Cesar (QPR/ENG)
Defenders: Daniel Alves, Adriano (both Barcelona/ESP), Filipe Luis, Miranda (both Atletico Madrid/ESP), Dante (Bayern Munich/GER), David Luiz (Chelsea/ENG), Leandro Castan (Roma/ITA)
Midfielders: Arouca (Santos), Hernanes (Lazio/ITA), Paulinho (Corinthians), Ramires, Oscar (both Chelsea/ENG), Ronaldinho (Atletico Mineiro)
Forwards: Neymar (Santos), Lucas Moura (Paris Saint-Germain/FRA), Luis Fabiano (Sao Paulo), Fred (Fluminense), Hulk (Zenit Saint Petersburg/RUS)
