RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Brazil coach Mano Menezes has ruled out resting striker Neymar during Wednesday's international friendly against Argentina.
Neymar is set to form a three-pronged attack alongside Lucas and Luis Fabiano at the Serra Dourada Stadium in Goiania.
"I think he is able to rest more when he is with us (national team) than with Santos," Menezes said on Tuesday. "With the Brazil squad us he trains, eats, rests and plays.
"He has become the most important player in Brazil and I don't see how we can leave him out of the team."
Menezes said the match provided an opportunity to experiment with new players in preparation next year's Confederations Cup, considered a warm-up event for the 2014 World Cup.
"I could have chosen a more experienced team but we have decided to give some other players a chance to prove themselves," Menezes said.
Argentina will host a return match against Brazil on Oct. 3 in Resistencia.
