Switzerland vs. Brazil

Brazil continue their build-up to hosting next year's World Cup on Wednesday when they travel to Switzerland for a friendly.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men will make the trip in fine spirits following their triumph over Spain in last month's Confederations Cup final.

The Swiss are also enjoying a good run of form as they sit top of their World Cup qualifying group.

Brazil have named virtually the same squad that won the Confederations Cup, with Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Lucas Moura and Neymar all included.

Meanwhile, Switzerland have rewarded defensive duo Fabian Schar and Michael Lang with their first senior call-ups.

Recent form:

Switzerland: DWWDDW

Brazil: WWWWWW

Possible lineups:

Switzerland: Benaglio; Lichtsteiner, Senderos, Schaer, Rodriguez; Behrami, Dzemaili, Inler, Shaqiri; Gavranovic, Mehmedi

Brazil: Cesar; Alves, Silva, Luiz, Marcelo; Hernanes, Gustavo, Oscar, Moura; Hulk, Neymar
