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.

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