SAO PAULO (AP) -- Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has included Atletico Madrid defenders Miranda and Filipe Luis to the list of seven players who will be on standby for the World Cup.

Scolari last week selected the 23 players who will play for the five-time champion at the home tournament. The seven added on Tuesday will only make it to the team in case of injuries or other problems with those already guaranteed.

Tuesday marked the deadline for the 32 nations playing the World Cup to send a preliminary 30-player list to FIFA.

Scolari also added Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Lucas Moura and Liverpool defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva, as well as Bayern Munich defender Rafinha, Fluminense goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri and Sao Paulo striker Alan Kardec.
