The Samba stars will be out in full force for the clash at Lansdowne Road on February 18 with only Rivaldo absent.
The World Cup winner has not been selected because his club side Cruzeiro are in action in the Copa Libertadores. Team-mate Alex has also been excluded for the same reason along with Santos pair Diego and Robinho.
The surprise selection in the 22-man party is Sevilla's Julio Baptista who is included in the full squad for the first time after being a regular in the Under-23 team.
The friendly will be a useful warm-up match for Parreira's team who face Paraguay in a World Cup qualifier on March 31.
