Chelsea trio Oscar, Luiz and Ramires named in Brazil squad

Three Chelsea players face a long round-trip to the United States in between two Premier League fixtures after being included in the Brazil squad to play a friendly on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, the Independent has reported. Midfielders Oscar and Ramires and defender David Luiz are the trio concerned.

The match between Brazil and the United States is due to be played at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on November 14, held to commemorate Brazil’s 1000th fixture. Three days before then Chelsea play Liverpool at Stamford Bridge while three days after the Premier League leaders travel to the Hawthorns to meet West Bromwich Albion.

That represents a total distance of almost 7,000 miles in a matter of days, and the Chelsea players are not the only Premier League regulars included in the travelling party by manager Mano Menezes. Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro has also been named, while Real Madrid midfielder Kaka is in the squad as well.
