South American rivals Brazil and Ecuador will take on each other in a friendly in New Jersey on Wednesday morning.

After beating Colombia 1-0 last week, thanks to a goal from captain Neymar, the Selecao continue redemption stage 1 under new boss Dunga, after being embarrassed in their own backyard at the World Cup a couple of months ago.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men were beaten on a record scoreline of 7-1 by eventual champions Germany in the semifinal, while the Netherlands did their part in adding insult to injury, beating the hosts 3-0 in the third place play-off.

That led to Big Phil's sacking and the return of tactician Dunga, who led to national team to the 2007 Copa America triumph. And the man, who captained the Brazil side which won the 1994 World Cup, now gets another shot at pushing the Selecao back to the top of the food chain.

"We were all torn up, but managed to produce an answer, a reply. Victories are always good for silencing your critics,'' ESPN UK quoted Dunga, after the win over Colombia on Saturday.

The manager will be without defenders David Luiz (knee) and Maicon, who has been excluded from the squad due to disciplinary issues.

Ecuador, on the other hand, also had a disappointing World Cup, where they failed to make it out of the group stage, with Switzerland pipping them to the second spot after pool toppers France. The South American side managed just a solitary win - against the group's whipping boys Honduras, and will now look for a few positive results to start a new era.

Ecuador also come into this fixture on the back of a win, after cruising past Bolivia 4-0 on Sunday.

"We hope we can do well against Brazil, although it will be a very tough match. I think we can do it because we have fast players, stated Junior Sornoza, who marked his debut with a goal on Sunday.

"We are aware of their strengths and we must be intelligent. We are happy with the way we've been doing our jobs so far. The group is united and that is very important.''

The last meeting between the teams came at the 2011 Copa America, where the Selecao won 4-2.
