Chelsea trio Filipe Luis, Oscar and Willian are in the squad but Ramires misses out due to a groin injury. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Manchester City’s Fernandinho complete the Premier League contingent.

Kaka, Robinho, and goalkeeper Jefferson are among those who dropped out. 

Dunga said some Brazil-based players were left out because the friendlies take place at the same time as important domestic fixtures.

Brazil will face Turkey in Istanbul on November 12 and then travel to Austria for a match on November 18.
