Miranda to Captain Brazil Against Austria
Brazil centre-half João Miranda will captain the Seleção in their final World Cup warm up Friendly against Austria on Sunday.
Brazil will finalise their preparations in Vienna and their rotational captaincy policy sees Miranda given another turn with the armband.
Coach Tite has already confirmed that they will continue the policy during the World Cup itself, with a different player captaining the team in each game.
Striker Gabriel Jesus led the side against Croatia at Anfield last weekend. Meanwhile, new Manchester United signing Fred will sit the game out.
Fred injured his ankle in training on Thursday and will not be risked, but Renato Augusto is fit again after a knee complaint and Neymar should be fit enough to start the match.
