Chelsea quartet, Man City's Fernandinho in Brazil squad

Brazil boss Dunga has named a 22-man squad for next month's friendlies with Argentina and Japan.

A Selecao take on South American rivals Argentina in Beijing on October 11 before facing Asian side Japan in Singapore three days later and will take with them a somewhat experimental roster.

Dunga has included Chelsea foursome Luis Filipe, Ramires, Willian and Oscar along with Manchester City's Fernandinho while Barcelona ace Neymar, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Paris Saint-Germain's David Luiz will also be involved but apart from that there are a lot of lesser-known names.

Former national team star Dunga will be looking to extend his winning run in his second spell as Brazil boss after overseeing recent 1-0 victories over Colombia and Ecuador following his replacement of Luis Felipe Scolari after the 2014 World Cup.
