Gabriel Barbosa, the teenage Santos striker who scored on his
Brazil debut last month, was also included as one of five
forwards, along with Gremio's Luan and Gabriel Jesus, the
coveted young Palmeiras striker.
The other over-age player is Palmeiras goalkeeper Fernando
Prass, coach Rogerio Micale told reporters in Rio de Janeiro.
Brazil named 18 players, 11 of whom play for Brazilian clubs,
and will call up another four before the July 18 deadline.
Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson, Rafinha Alcantara of Barcelona
and Paris St Germain defender Marquinhos were also included.
Brazil are attempting to win the Olympic gold medal, the only
major title they have never won, at their home Olympics in Rio
de Janeiro in August.
They will face South Africa, Iraq and Denmark in the opening
stage. (Reporting by Andrew Downie, editing by Ed Osmond)
