Brazil announce squad for Germany friendly

25 July 2011 06:00

Brazil coach Mano Menezes on Monday named a 23-man squad for the friendly with Germany in Stuttgart on August 10, as he looks to turn the page on his side's Copa America quarter-final exit.

Bidding for what would have been a fifth title in the last six tournaments, Brazil were sent packing by Paraguay after losing on penalties following a 0-0 draw in their last-eight encounter.

Despite their shock elimination, Menezes was confirmed in his post by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).
