Brazil are yet to announce an opponent or venue for the game, but that did not stop Dunga releasing an initial squad following Friday night's shock 2-0 loss to Venezuela in Foxborough in the USA.

Real Madrid's Robinho, 24, is the only player in the group of 12 who would fill one of the three over-age slots if he is named in the final squad for the Games.

Squad: Alves (Almeria); Rafinha (Schalke), Filipe (Deportivo la Coruna), Leonardo (Olympiakos), Breno (Bayern Munich); Lucas (Liverpool), Anderson (Manchester United), Diego (Werder Bremen), Fernandinho (Shakhtar Donetsk); Pato (Milan), Sobis (Real Betis), Robinho (Real Madrid).
