San Siro contingent called up for Brazil

Inter and Milan are well represented in Mano Menezes' latest Brazil squad ahead of a friendly against Scotland at the Emirates on March 27.

Julio Cesar, Douglas Maicon and Lucio were called up from Inter to bolster the defence. They will be joined in the backline by Milan's Thiago Silva.

The only other Serie A based player named in the squad is Milan striker Alexandre Pato who has been in terrific form since the advent of the New Year.

Pato has scored 11 goals in 12 League starts this season and will partner one of Nilmar, Neymar or Jonas up front against Scotland providing he doesn't suffer an injury.
