British record signing Robinho heads a trio of Barclays Premier League players called up to the Brazil squad to face Portugal in a friendly in Brasilia later this month.

Robinho, who signed for Manchester City in a £32.5million move on transfer deadline day, is joined by his Eastlands team-mate Elano as well as Manchester United midfielder Anderson.

However, City forward Jo misses out as fit-again Sevilla forward Luis Fabiano is recalled.

Former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva, who moved to Panathinaikos in the summer after six years with the north London club, is also in coach Dunga's squad.

Former World Player of the Year Ronaldinho, now with AC Milan, has also been overlooked for the November 19 clash.
