Anderson Polga
Club:Gremio
Position:Defender

Anderson Polga did well to make Luiz Felipe Scolari's final cut and has enhanced his reputation by being drafted into the team on a couple of occasions.

The 23-year-old has only just come to the national coaching staff's attention and, in the build-up to the tournament, impressed sufficiently to squeeze into the 23-man squad.

He showed he likes to attack in those friendlies, scoring twice in the recent win over Iceland.

Has all the attributes of a top-class central defender and could be among those switching to Europe following this summer's spectacle.
