Go, Douglas!

Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa has been called up by Dunga for Brazil's two friendlies in the United States at the beginning of September. They will play Costa Rica in New Jersey on September 5 and the United States in Massachusetts on September 8.

The big omission from the squad is Liverpool's 23 year old Philippe Coutinho. Apparently, Dunga values what Kaka brings to the team over what Coutinho does. That's right. Dunga has called up Kaka in 2015.

Also, I don't care what anyone says, Rafinha belongs on this team.

Here's the full 23-man roster:

Goalkeepers: Jefferson (Botafogo), Marcelo Grohe (Grêmio), Alisson (Internacional)

Defenders: Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Danilo (Real Madrid), Filipe Luís (Atlético Madrid), Douglas Santos (Atlético-MG), Miranda (Internazionale), David Luiz (PSG), Gabriel Paulista (Arsenal), Marquinhos (PSG)

Midfielders: Luiz Gustavo (Wolfsburg), Elias (Corinthians), Ramires (Chelsea), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Oscar (Chelsea), Douglas Costa (Bayern Munich), Willian (Chelsea), Lucas Lima (Santos), Kaká (Orlando City)

Forwards: Neymar (Barcelona), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Lucas (PSG), Hulk (Zenit)
