Seleçao time!

The Seleçao is getting ready for their friendly matches with Iran and the Ukraine. Menezes didn't put Neymar on the roster (this didn't bother me too much because the other babies on the team need tome to shine too) but out of curiosity i was trying to find out why. One article was complaining about Neymar.

"The 18 year-old phenomenom rejected a multimillion dollar offer from Chelsea, and then practically got his coach fired at his club Santos after having a temper tantrum, now Menezes has decided to not include the player."

And another, my favorite article about it, said Menezes didn't call him up for disciplinary measures.

Santos teenager Neymar, who made an exciting Brazil debut last month, has been dropped from October friendlies as a disciplinary measure, coach Mano Menezes said on Thursday.

The gifted but hot-headed 18-year-old ran into trouble with Santos coach Dorival Junior over acts of indiscipline last week that Menezes was also unhappy about. Dorival lost his job over a suspension he imposed on the player.

"I think it's essential to make our line quite clear in how we think of conducting our work (with the national team)," Menezes said after naming his squad.

"We always say what a player brings to the national team is what he produces on the pitch," he told a news conference.

Menezes added that Neymar's return to the Brazil squad depended entirely on the player who scored on his debut in a 2-0 away win over the United States last month.Reuters

The game again Iran is 10/7 and the Ukrane game is 10/11.

Goalkeepers: Victor, Jefferson, Neto
Defenders: Adriano, Andre Santos, Daniel Alves, Mariano, Alex, David Luiz, Rever, Thiago Silva
Midfielders: Carlos Eduardo, Elias, Giuliano, Lucas, Philippe Coutinho, Ramires, Sandro, Wesley
