Brazil head coach Dungan unveiled the final squad for the World Cup on Tuesday.

Dunga trimmed the lineup from an initial squad of 30 players only because it was a FIFA requirement.

The 23-man group selected by Dunga has been practicing in South Africa since last Thursday. The seven players on standby - Ronaldinho, Paulo Henrique Ganso, Sandro, Diego Tardelli, Alex, Carlos Eduardo and Marcelo - were all left out as expected.

Brazil opens its World Cup Group G campaign against DPR Korea on June 15, before playing Cote d'Ivoire and Portugal.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Heurelho Gomes (Tottenham), Doni (AS Roma).

Defenders: Maicon (Inter Milan), Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Michel Bastos (Lyon), Gilberto (Cruzeiro), Lucio (Inter Milan), Juan (AS Roma), Luisao (Benfica), Thiago Silva (AC Milan).

Midfielders: Elano (Galatasaray), Kaka (Real Madrid), Gilberto Silva (Panathinaikos), Josue (Wolfsburg), Ramires (Benfica), Felipe Melo (Juventus), Kleberson (Flamengo), Julio Baptista (AS Roma).

Forwards: Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Nilmar (Villarreal), Robinho (Santos), Grafite (Wolfsburg).
