The squad’s third permitted over-age player is Palmeiras goalkeeper Fernando Prass.

Gabriel Barbosa, the teenage Santos striker who scored on his Brazil debut last month, is one of five forwards in the largely under-23 squad.

Under-20s coach Rogerio Micale will manage the side after Dunga’s sacking in the aftermath of Copa America.
