SAO PAULO — Dunga has picked striker Robinho and left back Marcelo for Brazil's upcoming friendlies against France and Chile.

Brazil will play France at Stade de France on March 26 and Chile at Emirates Stadium in London on March 29. The games will serve as preparation for the Copa America in June, which will be Brazil's first official competition since its elimination in the semifinals of the World Cup.

Brazil hasn't played since beating Turkey 4-0 and Austria 2-1 in November, when Robinho and Marcelo were left out of both games. Robinho was playing with Santos in the final stages of the Brazilian league.

Dunga also picked Neymar, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Oscar, Willian and Philippe Coutinho.
