Neymar cleared to represent Brazil at Olympics

Barcelona star Neymar will lead Brazil as one of the Selecao's three over-23 players at the 2016 Olympic Games. 

National team coach Dunga has long coveted his skipper for the tournament, which will be played for the first time on Brazilian soil in Rio de Janeiro. 
The forward will be released by Barcelona to take part in the Games, the only major title the nation have never lifted. 

Willian in line to receive Brazil Olympics call-up
Chelsea midfielder Willian is wanted by Brazil coach Dunga as the nation's third over-age player at the 2016 Olympic Games, joining Neymar and Miranda in Rio de Janeiro. 

And with Inter defender Miranda also a shoe-in for selection, Willian is slated by Dunga as the third and final over-23 member of the squad - provided, of course, Chelsea give their blessing for the midfielder to be included.
