Julio Cesar and Fernandinho in Brazil squad
[WORLD CUP 2014 COUNTDOWN] Julio Cesar, who is expected to join MLS's Toronto FC on loan from Queens Park Rangers until the
World Cup, has been included in Brazil's squad for its final friendly before the World Cup squad is announced, a game at South Africa on March 5. Coach Luiz Felipe

DEFENDERS: David Luiz (Chelsea), Dante (Bayern Munich), Thiago Silva (Paris St.
Germain), Alves (Barcelona), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Rafinha (Bayern Munich).
MIDFIELDERS: Gustavo (Wolfsburg), Paulinho (Tottenham), Fernandinho (Man.
City), Ramires (Chelsea), Oscar (Chelsea).
FORWARDS: Hulk (Zenit St. Petersburg), Bernard (Shakhtar Donetsk), Willian (Chelsea), Neymar (Barcelona).
