Kaka, Ronaldinho to face Algeria
Kaka
Kaka missed the Copa America
Kaka and Ronaldinho will return to the Brazil team for Wednesday's friendly against Algeria in France.

The two players skipped the Copa America - held in Venezuela from 26 June to 15 July - to go on vacation after the European season.

Coach Dunga made four other changes to the squad on Tuesday, bringing in goalkeeper Julio Cesar, defender Lucio, midfielder Lucas and striker Rafael Sobis for the match at Montepellier's La Mosson stadium.

Dunga left out Helton, Alex, Gilberto Silva, Anderson, Afonso and Fred.

It will be Brazil's 12th friendly since Dunga replaced Carlos Alberto Parreira after the team's World Cup quarterfinal elimination to France.

Brazil have won seven games, lost one and drawn three under Dunga.

The Samba Kings have won all three games against Algeria, including at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

Algeria coach Jean-Michel Cavalli has named a 19-man squad, 14 of whom play in Europe and five in Algeria.

Marseille midfielder Salim Arrache was named after a long absence due to a knee injury.
