Who will be repping the gold and blue at Brazil’s home World Cup this summer? The picture’s clear thanks to Luiz Felipe Scolari’s roster release.
Kaka and Ronaldinho are the biggest names to not be on the list, as Scolari has the luxury of leaving off two former World Players of the Year. The team, as usual, is stacked.
Here’s the roster, with Starting XI “help” from the staff of Toronto FC:
— Toronto FC (@torontofc) May 7, 2014
GOALKEEPERS: Julio Cesar (Toronto FC), Jefferson (Botafogo), Victor (Atlético Mineiro)
FORWARDS: Hulk (Zenit), Neymar (Barcelona), Fred (Fluminense), Jô (Atlético Mineiro), Bernard (Shaktar Donetsk)
