The selection dilemmas Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari faces ahead of Wednesday's friendly at Wembley are ones England counterpart Roy Hodgson wishes he had.
For the first match of his second stint with Brazil, Scolari could find no space in a 20-man squad for stars including Real Madrid midfielder Kaka.
If England is to be a strong contender at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Hodgson knows he needs to be in a position where top talent can't fit in his squad.
Hodgson says ''that's how it should be if you are the manager of a top footballing nation. A country like ours should have a couple of good choices in each position. The Brazilians certainly do.''
