Power Ranking EPL Brazilians on International Duty
With another international break over, the dust will be settling on the various 2014 World Cup qualifying campaigns around the globe as nations grab places in next summer's extravaganza in Brazil.
But with Brazil already guaranteed a spot at the World Cup as hosts, the international break merely represents yet another chance for Selecao boss Luiz Felipe Scolari to tinker with his lineup.
And the squad this time around contained several very interesting call ups, with Liverpool's Lucas Leiva coming back into the frame after two years out of the team.
Who were the most impressive performers from the Premier League's own cast of Brazilians over the week as the Selecao faced down South Korea and Zambia?
A halftime substitute for the ineffectual Hulk against South Korea, Ramires was given the second half to make the right flank his own.
The Chelsea midfielder gave a decent display, if rather anonymous, and didn't put a foot wrong as Brazil went forward in search of a second goal to close out the game.
Ramires was then given the nod to start against Zambia but having been deployed initially as a No.10 and then shifted out wide as a right midfielder, Ramires failed to really settle on the ball.
A glorious chance early in the first half saw a dinked effort bounce just wide of the far post, but otherwise, Ramires delivered another average performance.
4: Lucas Leiva
Lucas Leiva wasn't given much time to impress on his return to the national setup, replacing Luiz Gustavo with 20 minutes left to play.
The Liverpool star was tidy in possession in the short time spent on the pitch against South Korea, but in truth the game was already becoming somewhat of a training session at that stage.
However, the Brazilian did start the next game against Zambia and was quietly efficient in midfield alongside Paulinho.
Overall, the defensive midfielder wasn't really tested against a poor Zambia side, and Scolari may want to recall Lucas for tougher games.
3: David Luiz
Starting in Brazil's win over South Korea alongside Bayern Munich star Dante, David Luiz was rarely called upon to deal with any threats from the opposing team.
The Chelsea star was calm in possession as usual and distributed the ball from the back, recycling the ball when needed and supplying the likes of Oscar and Paulinho.
Luiz retained his place in the team to face Zambia despite Scolari's raft of changes and, playing alongside Cruzeiro's Dede, delivered another assured performance at the back.
Zambia rarely posed a threat as Luiz snuffed out any hopes of snatching a goal on the counterattack, giving Brazil the confidence to camp in the opponent's half in search of an elusive goal.
The goals eventually came and the Chelsea defender can consider it a job well done with two clean sheets over the international break.
Reprising his usual role in the engine room alongside Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho went about the game against South Korea in his usual manner supporting Brazil's plethora of attacking talent.
And one of the game's decisive moments was triggered by the Brazilian's vision, picking out Oscar's run with pinpoint accuracy for Brazil's second.
His sensational through ball was easily converted to kill the game and secured a simple win over the South Koreans.
Paulinho was rather more muted against Zambia but still ran the midfield effectively despite an ineffectual Ramires.
The Tottenham star has firmly established himself in the Selecao and looks extremely unlikely to be dislodged ahead of Brazil 2014.
Retaining his usual spot in the Selecao lineup, Oscar notched the second goal in their 2-0 win over South Korea.
Latching onto Paulinho's superb through ball, the young Chelsea star kept his cool in front of goal as he rounded the goalkeeper and side-footed the ball into the empty net.
The goal topped off an assured display from the Brazilian, as he rarely put a foot out of place throughout the match before being replaced by Bernard late in the second half.
Oscar then repeated the trick against Zambia as a long range strike, aided by a huge deflection, opened the scoring for Brazil after a goalless first half.
The Brazilian delivered a superb performance as he dominated the game alongside the equally impressive Neymar after coming on as a second half substitute.
Two goals and two excellent displays secures Oscar's place at the top of this week's EPL Brazilians rankings.
