Dunga calls up uncapped Sandro for Brazil

Brazil coach Dunga has handed a first senior call-up to Internacional midfielder Sandro for the World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Chile.

The 20-year-old, who captained the Brazil Under-20 side to the South American title in Venezuela earlier this year, takes the place of Wolfsburg captain Josue who was ruled out after undergoing knee surgery.

Brazil face Argentina on September 5 and Chile on September 9.

Sandro is one of the four home-based players in Brazil's squad, alongside Flamengo striker Adriano, Gremio goalkeeper Victor and Sao Paulo defender Miranda.

Brazil lead the South American World Cup qualifying group with 27 points, one point better off than Chile, three ahead of Paraguay, and five clear of Argentina.

Brazil squad: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Victor (Gremio); Maicon (Inter Milan), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Filipe (Deportivo La Coruna), Andre Santos (Fenerbahce), Luisao (Benfica), Miranda (Sao Paulo), Lucio (Inter Milan), Juan (Roma); Gilberto Silva (Panathinaikos), Felipe Melo (Juventus), Lucas (Liverpool), Elano (Galatasaray), Ramires (Benfica), Julio Baptista (Roma), Kaka (Real Madrid), Sandro (Internacional); Nilmar (Villarreal), Robinho (Manchester City), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Adriano (Flamengo).
