Brazil is bringing the big guns to MetLife Stadium next month.

The Selecao have announced their 24-man squad for the friendly against the U.S. men’s national team in New Jersey on Sept. 7, as Tite’s men look to get back to business after the slight disappointment of only reaching the last eight of the 2018 World Cup this summer.

Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Alisson are all included as Brazil aim to wow what should be a mammoth crowd in East Rutherford. However, there are some intriguing absentees with Man City trio Fernandinho, Gabriel Jesus and Ederson not included in the roster.

In total there are 13 players on the roster who played for Brazil at the World Cup in Russia this summer as they lost to Belgium 2-1 at the quarterfinal stage.

Below is a look at Brazil’s squad in full, with the USMNT (currently coached by interim boss Dave Sarachan) yet to name their squad for the September friendlies against Brazil on Sept. 7 and then Mexico on Sept. 11 in Nashville.
