[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING]
Before Brazil heads to the Confederations Cup, where it will face the USA, it hosts Paraguay Wednesday in a clash of the South
American qualifying group leaders.
Brazil is coming off a 4-0 win at Uruguay, where it got goals from defenders Daniel Alves

(from the penalty spot).
Fabiano is suspended for Wednesday's game. Dunga's options for Robinho
's partner up front are Pato Alexandre
"Pato plays a bit like me," said
Robinho, "but Nilmar plays more in the middle. I have played more times with Nilmar on junior teams and I am more accustomed to playing with him. But Pato is also a great player and Brazil will be
well served with either."
