Brazil head coach Dunga has left out Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho from his latest Brazil squad for next month’s South America World Cup qualifiers first away to Argentina before returning home to host Peru.
The Liverpool man who was forced to withdraw from the last international break due to injury has since been replaced in the squad by former Real Madrid star Kaka – currently plying his trade with Orlando City in the MLS.
Kaka who has 91 caps for Brazil last featured for his country in the 3-1 win over Venezuela last week where he impressed enough to earn a place in the squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Peru next month.
Barcelona star Neymar has also returned to the international setup after missing the last four competitive games due to a suspension.
Brazil will travel to Buenoa Aires to face great rivals Argentina on November 12 and then go on to Salvador five days later to play Peru.
