With the 2014 World Cup looming on the horizon, Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has been hard at work fine-tuning his Selecao line-up ahead of the summer extravaganza. But as is always the case with the country’s incredible well of talent, many stars have been overlooked for the Selecao cause.

Here’s a starting XI of players deemed not good enough to wear the famed canary-yellow shirts and subsequently snubbed by Scolari.

Goalkeeper: Diego Alves


Valencia’s No.1 has been a busy boy this season, pulling off top class save after top class save, but is forever overlooked in favour of domestic-based keepers.

A reliable custodian for Los Che, Alves has earned a reputation as a shotstopper averaging 2.86 saves per game and conceding once every two saves.

A good job then, as he goes straight into our XI.
