Brazil-Russia: Kaká, Marcelo, Thiago Silva set to start

Scolari has decided the lineup for the game against Russia as the national team trained today at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium.

The most expected change is that Thiago Silva will start instead of Dante. The PSG defender missed the game against England as he was not fully fit.

Marcelo is back to first team, replacing Filipe, while Kaká is back to the starting lineup as Hulk is dropped to the bench. Chelsea midfielder Ramires has been ruled out.

This will be the first time Scolari returns to his Chelsea's stadium since he was sacked by the English club in 2009.

Scolari said the following about the changes: "I made some changes for tomorrow's game taking into account the Confederations Cup as I'll have only two games with Brazil-based players although I'm trying to get some players released for these games. I need a balanced team, I have to work with the two games".

This is Brazil's probable lineup against Russia tomorrow: Júlio César, Daniel Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo; Fernando, Hernanes, Oscar, Kaká; Neymar and Fred
