Scolari Settles on Brazil's Starting Lineup for World Cup Opener
Brazil - Turkey | News Archive

Kleberson set to make his debut (Allsport)
05/23/2002. Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has named the 11 players who will take the field in the Selecao's World Cup opener against Turkey on June 3rd.

Among the 11 is the surprise inclusion of Kleberson. The 22-year old midfielder from Atletico-PR has impressed Scolari sufficiently in training to earn his World Cup debut. Corinthians midfielder Vampeta appears to be the player Kleberson supplanted.

Here is the full lineup (3-5-2):
Marcos (GK); Lucio, Edmílson and Roque Junior; Cafu, Emerson, Kleberson, Rivaldo and Roberto Carlos; Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.

Last dress rehearsal for Scolari and Brazil (AP)
05/24/2002. Brazil's final World Cup tune-up comes against a meager but enthusiastic Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur. In a match that fans of the Selecao hope will not result in any last-minute injuries, Luiz Felipe Scolari should trot out the players who will take the field in their World Cup opener against Turkey for at least a half.

Fireworks are possible as Malaysia should not prevent any serious threat to knocking off the Brazilians. Scolari knows this is the last opportunity to observe how his players cope with his tactics and strategies. His biggest concern heading into June is whether or not the defense can rise to the occasion. Unfortunately, the defense likely will not be severely tested against Malaysia.

BRAZIL'S LINEUP:
Marcos (GK); Lucio, Edmílson, Roque Júnior; Cafu, Emerson, Kleberson, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos; Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.
