The list of players brought some surprises, giving a chance for players wanted by the whole nation, they are: Nilmar (Internacional), Ramires (Cruzeiro), Victor (Gremio) and Andre Santos (Corinthians). All of them deserve this chance, but the majority of opinions say that despite the fact they deserve it, it isn't the right moment, especially for the teams.

It happens that Internacional, Cruzeiro, Gremio and Corinthians are playing decisive matches and it's too much to lose a vital player in these games. They can make the difference. Gremio's coach has already said that he dislikes Dunga's decision. "Victor is one of our most important players, it is not fair, he will not even play in the national squad, he will be in the third option as goalkeeper ... is it really necessary to call him now?" Gremio is playing the quarterfinals of Libertadores, and surely will miss the goalkeeper Victor for the two decisive matches.

For Internacional, the situation is even worse. The team will play the quarterfinals of the Cup of Brazil and will not have Nilmar, who was called to Brazil's National Squad and D'alessandro, who was called to Argentina's National Squad. The coach hasn't complained, yet. The whole nation was asking for Nilmar's participation in the national squad as he is currently the best attacker in Brazil, scoring amazing goals and playing great matches.
