Brazil 'leaked' starting XI v England as calls made on Newcastle United, West Ham & Aston Villa stars

Brazil's 'leaked' starting XI to face England in this evening's international friendly at Wembley.

Brazil manager Dorival Junior has an array of talent available to him for tonight's international friendly against England at Wembley (kick-off 7pm).

Junior takes charge of his first match since replacing interim boss Fernando Diniz in January. And a familiar face who is hoping to earn his place in the starting XI is Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes.

Guimaraes returns to Wembley for the first time since being left in tears after Newcastle lost the Carabao Cup final 2-0 to Manchester United in February last year. But the midfielder is hoping to leave with happier memories this time around.

"It was [hurtful]. But to see the stadium full of 20,000 or 30,000 Geordies was massive," said Guimaraes. "I'm looking forward to playing a big game against England. I want to play well and make Brazil win, it will be unbelievable.

"Wembley is massive for everyone. It is already very special but now I am going there, we have to win. I want to go there and win now."

Brazil have been training at Arsenal's London Colney this week with Premier League stars such as Manchester City's Ederson, Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz, West Ham United's Lucas Paqueta, Wolves' Joao Gomes, Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli and Tottenham Hotspur's Richarlison also looking to eyeing a starting spot.

And here's how Brazil are expected to line-up versus England - according to reputable sources in South America.
