Brazil’s 23-man squad for the World Cup is announced as Luiz Felipe Scolari leaves out Philippe Coutinho, Lucas ,Kaka , Ronaldinho,Robinho…

Luis Felipe Scolari named the squad he hopes can deliver glory for Brazil on home soil.

With an astonishing 17 World Cup rookies in his panel, Scolari, a World Cup winner with his country in 2002, opted against bringing along out-of-favour tournament veterans like Kaka or Robinho back into the fold.

Scolari sprung a surprise in selecting Napoli’s Henrique and PSG full back Maxwell among his reserve defenders along with the veteran Maicon, spurning the chance to call upon the red-hot Atletico Madrid pair of Miranda and Felipe Luis.

Tournament begins in Sao Paulo on 12 June and runs until 13 July, with Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon in Group A with Brazil
