Elano Favoured To Replace Gilberto Silva

Elano is in line to replace the suspended Gilberto Silva in Brazil’s midfield for tomorrow’s Copa America showdown with Argentina.

The Shaktar Donetsk utility man took over in Gilberto Silva’s midfield role during Dunga’s training session on Friday. The first team chosen by Dnga for the run out lost 1-0 to the 11 reserves.

Elano’s inclusion would not be a surprise as he had, until the start of the competition, played in every one of Dunga’s games in charge. The Manager is a big fan of the former Santos player’s running on the right hand side of the midfield.
