[BRAZIL] Neymar and Ganso of Santos were among the young Brazilian-based stars Coach Mano Menezes called up for the Brazil squad for the 2011 Copa America next month in Argentina.

AC Milan's Alexandre Pato was also picked despite nursing a right shoulder injury. Ganso has been bothered by a thigh injury.

"I'm taking into consideration the potential of these players," Mano said. "I've said before that Ganso is the more complete player for the position to organize the team the way I want, and there will be a lot of time for him to get ready and play well."

Mano's team consists of six players each from clubs in Brazil and Italy, four from clubs in England and Spain and one each from clubs in Turkey and Ukraine.

Brazil Roster:
Goalkeepers: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Victor (Gremio).
Defenders: Dani Alves (Barcelona), Maicon (Inter Milan), Andre Santos (Fenerbahce), Adriano (Barcelona), Lucio (Inter Milan), David Luiz (Chelsea), Thiago Silva (AC Milan), Luisao (Benfica).
Midfielders: Lucas (Liverpool), Ramires (Chelsea), Sandro (Tottenham), Elias (Atletico Madrid), Lucas (Sao Paulo), Jadson (Shakhtar Donetsk), Elano (Santos), Paulo Henrique Ganso (Santos).
Forwards: Alexandre Pato (AC Milan), Neymar (Santos), Fred (Fluminense), Robinho (AC Milan).

    wasnt it sad to see Neymar diving all over the place in the Dutch friendly over the weekend. A remarkable talent no doubt but without the character and sportsmanship necessary to even be in the same sentence as Pele' whom he is often compared to.
