Ramires has been rewarded for a brilliant season with Chelsea by gaining a recall to the Brazilian national team.

The 25-year old midfielder has not played for the Selecao for about a year but could be back in action when they meet Sweden on August 15 after Mano Menezes included him in his squad.

Ramires will join Blues teammate David Luiz and new signing Oscar as well as fellow Premier League players Rafael (Manchester United) and Sandro (Tottenham).
