Brazil have named their squad for friendlies against Italy and Russia, with Real Madrid’s Kaka recalled for both matches.

Playmaker Ronaldinho has been left out after disappointing performance in the defeat to England at Wembley and failing to impress domestically in South America.

Santos starlet Neymar, Paris Saint-Germain new boy Lucas Moura and Bayern Munich defender Dante are three other names that have made the cut ahead of the March matches.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari failed to select Kaka for his first squad as coach since his return to the post, but the midfielder could get the chance to prove his worth after impressing for Real in February.

The World Cup 2014 hosts travel to Geneva to play Italy on March 21 before taking on Russia at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge four days later.

Brazil:

Goalkeepers: Julio Cesar (Queens Park Rangers), Diego Cavalieri (Fluminense).

Defenders:
Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid), David Luiz (Chelsea), Dede (Vasco da Gama), Dante (Bayern Munich), Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain).

Midfielders:
Paulinho (Corinthians), Ramires (Chelsea), Jean (Fluminense), Fernando (Gremio), Luiz Gustavo (Bayern Munich), Kaka (Real Madrid), Hernanes (Lazio), Oscar (Chelsea), Lucas (Paris Saint-Germain).

Forwards: Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid), Neymar (Santos), Fred (Fluminense), Hulk (Zenit).
