Kardec and Tardelli watched by Felipão
The Palmeiras and Atlético-MG strikers are on the radar of the national team boss for the friendly against South Africa on March 5.
Palmeiras’ Alan Kardec may not necessarily be the new name in Brazil’s squad for the friendly in Johannesburg as Atlético-MG striker Diego Tardelli is also thought to be being monitored.
The squad will be announced on Monday.
The two are likely to compete for just one place with the other two srikers’ postitions likely to be filled by Fred and Jô who have been regulars in Scolari’s squads since the Confederations Cup last year.
Kardec is thought to have had an informal conversation with Scolari about a call-up in recent weeks whilst Tardelli has risen to prominence since his team’s success in the Copa Libertadores in July.
