Samba at the Ciutat Esportiva

Jesús Carrillo / Jordi Clos

Dani Alves and the Brazil squad began their training get together at FC Barcelona's Ciutat Esportiva on Friday afternoon as the national team arrived and will be joined by Adriano Correia on Saturday.

With the Barça players given a holiday until Tuesday the Blaugrana training complex has been taken over by a new tenant as A Seleção moved in to work for four days. Coach Mano Menezes will oversee his squad as he continues to build after returning to action following the World Cup Finals. On Tuesday Brazil will round off their stay in the city with a friendly against the Barça B side.

Adriano called up

The squad that trained on pitch three at the training complex included Diego Alves, Gomes, Alex, Henrique, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, André Santos, Dani Alves, Marcelo, Rafael, Douglas Costa, Fernandinho, Hernanes, Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Sandro, Coutinho, Pato, André, Carlos Eduardo, Hulk and Robinho.

Marcelo picked up a knock at the last moment and Barça's Adriano has now been drafted in to take his place. He will join Alves and Henrique, who is currently on loan to Racing Santander, who will work on their home ground.
