BY foxsports • October 23, 2014

Paris Saint-Germain players Thiago Silva and Lucas are back in Brazil's squad for friendlies against Turkey and Austria next month.

It's their first callups by Dunga since he became coach after the World Cup. Lucas was not in the World Cup squad.

Brazil will play Turkey on Nov. 12 in Istanbul, and Austria in Vienna on Nov. 18.

The list included Neymar, as expected, as well as surprises such as Porto midfielder Casemiro and Hoffenheim striker Firmino. Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano also was included.

Brazil has played four matches under Dunga, beating Ecuador, Colombia, Argentina and Japan.

The coach didn't pick players from Brazilian clubs as the local season is reaching its decisive rounds.
