Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has this afternoon confirmed his 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup, which features six Premier League stars and a quartet of Chelsea's Selecao stars in David Luiz, Willian, Oscar and Ramires.

Scolari has decided against any last-minute surprises but does find room for under-fire Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho, with Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho still overlooked despite a brilliant campaign at Anfield.

Manchester City enforcer Fernandinho has gatecrashed the squad thanks to a tremendous first Premier League campaign with Manchester City, while the pressure to fire Brazil to success on home soil will fall to Neymar and domestic-based forwards Jo and Fred.

Atletico Madrid defensive duo Filipe Luis and Miranda are both notable absentees, with Scolari also resisting the temptation to rely on former glory with the likes of Kaka and Robinho.

Brazil squad: Júlio César, Jefferson, Victor, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Henrique Dante, Marcelo, Maxwell, Dani Alves, Maicon, Ramires, Hernanes, Paulinho, Willian, Fernandinho, Luiz Gustavo, Oscar, Neymar, Fred, Hulk, Jo, Bernard
