At Real Madrid they are unhappy about the excuses that Dunga has come up with to justify not including Marcelo in the Brazil 'Seleção' to face Uruguay and Paraguay at the end of this month. The Brazil coach explained that the doctors who attend the 'Canarinha' spoke to their counterparts at Real Madrid and as the full-back has had several injuries in recent times, they had decided not to risk him. However, as Marca reports, that conversation between national team and club doctors never actually took place.

At the Bernabéu they are worried that his exclusion from the national team will affect Marcelo's morale at the crucial stage of the season that is coming up, when Madrid will be playing for the Champions League and, while it is still mathematically possible, the La Liga title. Marcelo has had a wave of criticism in Brazil, where he has been accused of putting club before country, especially as the games in question are important qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

One player who seems likely to make Dunga's team is Casemiro. The Madrid midfielder has already played under the coach, in the Copa América. Dunga was impressed by the great performance Casemiro put in against Roma: "He does the kind of work that very often isn't recognised, but at Madrid they are doing that", he told 'Esporte Interactivo'.
