Brazil squad announced for Germany test

Brazil coach Mano Menezes has named a 23-man squad for the friendly with Germany in Stuttgart on 10 August as he looks to turn the page on his side's disappointing Copa America campaign.

Bidding for what would have been a fifth title in the last six tournaments, Brazil were sent packing by Paraguay after losing on penalties following a 0-0 draw in their quarter-final encounter.

Despite their shock elimination, Menezes was confirmed in his post by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).
