"Most other countries are playing two games but we are only playing one match and returning the players on Sunday, four days earlier than the other countries.

"We've been looking at his performance in the Portuguese league and the Champions League, and now there is an opportunity to see him from up close," Dunga said.
The coach said he summoned several new players because "a lot can still happen" until the 2010 World Cup.
"We have to look at players with different characteristics because we can always change the way we play," Dunga said.
Robinho who missed last three world cup qualifying games has been back into the squad after recovering his ankle injury. The
forward last played for Manchester City in a 3-1 victory over Brazil last September. There is no player from Brazilian league as Dunga decided not to include Adriano and Ronaldo. Juventus midfielder Diego as well as AC Milan’s Pato and Ronaldinho failed to make it to the final squad. However, Real Madrid striker Kaka and Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar have successfully retained their place in the squad. Sevilla’s Luis Fabiano is also there in the forward line up alongside Robinho, Nilmar and Hulk. Argentina

"We have sent an urgent fax to the Brazilian Football Federation with all the necessary documentation. If the national team doctors want to verify the condition of their players, they can come to
and do it." Rome
