Reported Chelsea and Spurs target Hulk is left out of Brazil's starting XI for their Olympic semi-final match with South Korea.

Reported Premier League transfer target Hulk has been left out of Brazil's starting lineup for their Olympic semi-final match against South Korea tonight.

The Porto forward has been dropped in favour of defender Alex Sandro, who returns after suspension as manager Mano Menezes opts for a change of system.

In Hulk's absence, Leandro Damiao and Neymar form a two-man attack while new Chelsea signing Oscar and Tottenham Hotspur's Sandro are included in the midfield.

South Korea, who conquered Team GB in the last eight, are forced into one change as Lee Bum-Young replaces the injured Jung Sung-Ryong in goal.

Brazil: Gabriel; Rafael, Juan, Thiago Silva, Alex Sandro; Sandro, Romulo, Oscar, Marcelo; Damio, Neymar

South Korea: Lee; Oh, Hwang, Y Kim, Yun; B Kim, Ki, Koo, Han; Ji, H Kim
