After ten years, Brazilian Lucas Leiva would end his Liverpool stay. The trip would be a farewell as he is set to leave this summer. His compatriots Philippe Coutinho and German Emre Can would not be on the trip as they have international commitments. Brazil is set to play Australia and Argentina in friendly games and Coutinho has been named. Can would play in the Confederations Cup after his coach Joachim Low named him.
