The rebuilding of Brazil continues when it faces England at Wembley on Friday in a key test before the Copa America later this month.

Coach Dunga's squad for Friday's game should include superstars Ronaldinho and Kaka, who have both asked not to go to Venezuela for the Copa America.

Kaka and Ronaldinho are expected to play behind Vagner Love and Robinho of Real Madrid in the Brazil attack at Wembley. Jo could start for Robinho, giving Brazil a strike force of players based at Russian club CSKA Moscow.

Gilberto Silva was outstanding in midfield for Arsenal and should join Elano of Ukraine club Shakhtar Donetsk as holding midfielders behind Ronaldinho and Kaka against England.

After the game, Brazil travels to Dortmund, Germany, to face Turkey next Tuesday.

Dunga's short list of players for the Copa America includes 34 players. Of the 26 European-based players, they play on teams in 10 different countries, reflecting the popularity of Brazilians across Europe.

DUNGA'S COPA SHORT LIST:
Goalkeepers: Helton (Porto, Portugal), Doni (Roma, Italy), Diego (Atletico Mineiro).
Defenders: Alex Silva (Sao Paulo), Alex (PSV, Netherlands), Juan (Bayer Leverkusen, Germany), Naldo (Werder Bremen, Germany), Marcelo (Real Madrid, Spain), Gilberto (Hertha Berlin, Germany), Maicon (Inter Milan, Italy), Daniel Alves (Sevilla, Spain), Cicinho (Real Madrid, Spain), Edmilson (Barcelona, Spain), Edu Dracena (Fenerbahce, Turkey), Kleber (Santos), Tiago Silva (Fluminense).
Midfielders: Josue (Sao Paulo), Diego (Werder Bremen, Germany), Elano (Shakhtar Donetsk, Ukraine), Mineiro (Hertha Berlin, Germany), Anderson (Porto, Portugal), Fernando (Bordeaux, France), Gilberto Silva (Arsenal, England), Julio Baptista (Arsenal, England), Lincoln (Schalke 04, Germany), Morais (Vasco da Gama), Ze Roberto (Santos).
Forwards:Robinho (Real Madrid, Spain), Vagner Love (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Jo (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Afonso (Heerenveen, Netherlands), Fred (Lyon, France), Carlos Eduardo (Gremio), Rafael Sobis (Real Betis, Spain).
