Senderos recalled for Brazil friendly

BERN, Switzerland, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Switzerland defender Philippe Senderos has been recalled for next Wednesday's friendly against Brazil.

The 21-year-old Arsenal player, who dislocated his shoulder during Switzerland's World Cup group stage win over South Korea on June 23, has been named in a 27-man squad by coach Koebi Kuhn.

Senderos has played just one cup match for Arsenal since recovering from the injury, spending the last three league and Champions League matches on the bench.

Striker Johan Vonlanthen was also recalled to the squad but looks set to miss out due to a shoulder injury.

The Salzburg forward was axed from Switzerland's World Cup squad in controversial circumstances after he partially tore a hamstring but then tried to challenge the team doctors' diagnosis with his own private medical report.

Having finally won back his place in the squad, the Colombian-born player is now set to miss out on the Brazil meeting after straining his right shoulder during Salzburg's 2-1 defeat at Mattersburg on Tuesday.

Salzburg announced on Wednesday that Vonlanthen would have to rest for around 10 days.

Kuhn is relying on the bulk of his World Cup squad for the match in Basel, with no new names being added to the squad.

Switzerland have already made sure of a place at the 2008 European Championships as tournament co-hosts along with neighbouring Austria.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Diego Benaglio (Nacional Madeira), Fabio Coltorti (Grasshoppers Zurich), Pascal Zuberbuehler (West Bromwich Albion)

Defenders: Valon Behrami (Lazio), Philipp Degen (Borussia Dortmund), Johan Djourou (Arsenal), Stephane Grichting (Auxerre), Ludovic Magnin (Stuttgart), Patrick Mueller (Olympique Lyon), Philippe Senderos (Arsenal), Christoph Spycher (Frankfurt)

Midfielders: Tranquillo Barnetta (Bayer Leverkusen), Ricardo Cabanas (Cologne), David Degen (Borussia Moenchengladbach), Blerim Dzemaili (FC Zurich), Daniel Gygax (Lille), Benjamin Huggel (Frankfurt), Goekhan Inler (FC Zurich), Xavier Margairaz (FC Zurich), Johann Vogel (Real Betis), Raphael Wicky (Hamburg), Hakan Yakin (Young Boys Bern)

Forwards: Alex Frei (Borussia Dortmund), Mauro Lustrinelli (Sparta Prague), Alberto Regazzoni (FC Sion), Marco Streller (Stuttgart), Johan Vonlanthen (Salzburg)
