The presence of United team-mate Rafael in the Brazil squad offers a familiar face for Giggs.
However, there is little doubt who the star attraction is; superstar in waiting Neymar.
"Neymar is one player that Rafa and Anderson have told me about," said Giggs.
"They say he's something special. With the next World Cup being played in Brazil these players will be trying to impress, looking to put a marker down that they can play tournament football.
"It's great for the fans coming to Middlesbrough to see Brazil play live, purely because of the history they have in the game."
