Brazil have named a strong squad for their 08 Olympic campaign as they aim to win a title that has eluded them so far.

Brazil’s Olympic Football squad for Beijing 2008:

Coach:
Dunga, 44

Goalkeepers:
Diego (23) (Almeira, Spain)
Renan (23) (Internacional)

Defenders:
Alex Silva (23) (Sao Paulo)
Breno (18) (Bayern Munich, Germany)
Thiago Silva (23) (Fluminese)
Ilsinho (22) (Shakhtar Donetsk, Ukraine)
Rafinha (22) (Schalke 04, Germany)
Marcelo (20) (Real Madrid, Spain)

Midfielders:
Anderson (20) (Manchester United, England)
Diego (23) (Werder Bremen, Germany)
Hernanes (23) (Sao Paulo)
Lucas (21) (Liverpool, England)
Ronaldinho (28) (Barcelona, Spain)
Thiago Neves (23) (Fluminese)

Strikers:
Alexandre Pato (18) (AC Milan, Italy)
Jo (21) (Manchester City, England)
Rafael Sobis (23) (Real Betis, Spain)
Robinho (24) (Real Madrid, Spain)

As you can see, Brazil have named an experinced squad with several players aged 22 and 23. The younger ones are usually sensational stars on their own (Anderson, Jo, Lucas, Breno) and in Diego, Ronaldinho and Robinho they have three excellent attacking players who will be able to ply open the inexperienced defenders at the Olympics with ease.

Even if one or two of these players don’t make it to the Olympics (due to club-FIFA squabbling), the squad is quite strong and in an easy group (Group C has Brazil, China, Belgium and New Zealand).
