Two of the men that didn't quite make the cut when head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari named his final World Cup squad of 23 have been out at a fancy dress party in their homeland as they bid to make the most of their post-season extended break.

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Rafael of Manchester United decided to let their hair down alongside their wives by dressing as pirates and cowboys at a bash in Brazil after others jumped ahead f them in the World Cup queue.

Coutinho in particular is believed to have been in the reckoning for a call-up after impressing in the latter half of Liverpool's campaign with some stirring performances in the final third.

And Rafael, although having a poor season by Manchester United's lofty standards, would have been in the mix had injury befallen either Daniel Alves or Maicon.

Neither player has made the seven-man list of back-up alternatives announced by Scolari and so the only party they will be attending this summer will be one of the fancy dress variety.
