Sao Paulo, Apr 3: Luiz Felipe Scolari has included Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato in the Brazil squad to play a friendly at Bolivia on Saturday.

  


Only players from Brazilian clubs were called up for the match in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Part of the proceeds from the friendly will go to the family of 14-year-old Kevin Beltran Espada who was killed at a Copa Libertadores match in February.
   
Neymar and Leandro Damiao also were included in the 18-player squad announced Tuesday by Scolari.
   
Ronaldinho, who played for Scolari when Brazil won the 2002 World Cup, had not been selected by the coach for friendlies against Italy and Russia last month.
   
Espada died after being hit in the face by a flare apparently set off by fans from Brazilian club Corinthians against San Jose.
