Chelsea’s Ramires has been recalled into the Brazil squad by Luiz Felipe Scolari.

The 26-year old midfielder missed A Selecao’s Confederations Cup triumph earlier this summer because of a miscommunication regarding his fitness between the Blues and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

However, Scolari has included Ramires in his 22-man squad for friendlies with Australia and Portugal next month.

Joining Ramires are fellow Chelsea stars David Luiz and Oscar as well as Tottenham recruit Paulinho and Barcelona wunderkind Neymar.
