Team News: Two changes for Brazil, Dani Alves drops out

Brazil manager Luis Felipe Scolari makes two changes to his starting lineup for tonight's quarter-final clash against Colombia in Fortaleza.

Luiz Felipe Scolari has made two changes to Brazil's starting lineup for tonight's World Cup quarter-final meeting with Colombia.

As expected, Paulinho returns to the side to replace the suspended Luis Gustavo, while Dani Alves misses out for the host nation, meaning a first start of the finals for Maicon.

Further up the field Neymar has shaken off a knock to retain his place behind under-fire striker Fred.

Meanwhile, Colombia manager Jose Pekerman has recalled Segundo Ibarbo to his starting XI, with Jackson Martinez the man to drop out.

There is also a place in the starting lineup for Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarín, as Los Cafeteros look to pull off an upset in Fortaleza.

Brazil: Julio Cesar, Maicon, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Hulk, Oscar, Neymar, Fred
