Brazil welcome Portugal to the Mane Garrincha Stadium on Wednesday for a first friendly game between the two clubs on Brazilian soil in nearly two decades. Watch all the live streaming soccer here on Live Sport Network.
Brazilian coach Dunga has included Inter Milan striker Adriano in his squad for the friendly and expressed confidence that the 26-year old striker is returning back to his best in spite of disciplinary problems with his club back in Italy.
Adriano had been dropped from Inter's matches against Fiorentina and Reggina with manager Jose Mourinho taking a tough stance over the striker coming late for a training session. But Dunga revealed that he has had no problems with Adriano's behavior in the national squad and added that the striker was a key player in Brazil's push to claim the top spot in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
AC Milan superstar Ronaldinho has been once again overlooked for the national squad though Dunga added that the former Barcelona midfielder needs to get a run of games under his belt and predicted that Ronaldinho will be back to his best in 2009.
Meanwhile Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz will be hoping that his side can manage to kick start their qualification campaign with a good performance against Brazil. Portugal sit third in their World Cup qualification group with just five points from their first four matches, two points behind group leaders Denmark who also have a game in hand.
Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma and Benfica’s Nuno Gomes have not been included in the squad though Juventus midfielder Tiago earns his first call up to the national squad in more than 15 months.
