" Sunday's announcement is the second change to Brazil's original 22-man squad announced by Dunga Aug 19."
Rio de Janeiro, Sep 1 - Brazil coach Dunga has handed an international recall to former Real Madrid striker Robinho for football friendlies against Colombia and Ecuador.

The 30-year-old replaces forward Hulk, who injured his left thigh while playing for Zenit St. Petersburg Sunday, Brazil's football confederation said in a statement, reports Xinhua.

Brazil will play Colombia at Miami's Sun Life stadium Sep 5 before taking on Ecuador at Boston's MetLife stadium four days later.

Robinho has not played for Brazil since scoring in the Selecao's 2-1 victory over Chile last November.

Sunday's announcement is the second change to Brazil's original 22-man squad announced by Dunga Aug 19.

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo was also added after a thigh injury ruled out Porto's Alex Sandro.
